There isn’t long left to get involved with Gloucestershire’s biggest awards, with nominations for the anticipated SoGlos Gloucestershire Lifestyle Awards 2022 closing at midnight on Thursday 31 March 2022.
Since its launch in 2018, SGGLA has been on a mission to celebrate the best lifestyle sector businesses in and around Gloucestershire – sponsored this year by Visit Gloucestershire, a partnership designed to champion and support the visitor economy and tourism sector in the county.
Nominations are open now, and local lifestyle businesses can enter for free via soglos.com/awards-lifestyle.
Following a brilliant celebration evening in 2021 when SGGLA returned to its real-life format, the awards will be championing businesses from all over the county with 18 diverse SGGLA categories to suit organizations of all shapes and sizes – from cultural hotspots to restaurants, hotels and shops to events and charitable causes, plus the brand-new addition of Art Gallery of the Year and Café of the Year.
All nominations must be made through an official representative of the organization, so please point your favorite Gloucestershire business in the direction of soglos.com/awards-lifestyle if you want to see them get the recognition they deserve.
