About Us

Since 1988, the Yorkshire Awards have been recognising those who had an impact upon Yorkshire and its people, demonstrating their affection for, and real commitment to, the County.

Under the Chairmanship of Sir Rodney Walker, a committee, representing the interests of the awards sponsors, consider nominations for Yorkshire Awards and collectively decide the most deserving winners. This Committee meets regularly throughout the year to consider nominations received for nine categories.

Each nomination received is fully discussed by the Committee; the selection of Award Winners is a Committee decision and is not influenced by the number of nominations received for a candidate.

A NEW AWARD
FOR A NEW ERA.

In 2018, for the 30th Yorkshire Awards,
a new logo and award, specially designed
to symbolise the County’s pride in the winners, was created.
