The SoGlos Gloucestershire Lifestyle Awards is back for 2022, with nominations officially open now via soglos.com/awards-lifestyle.
Sponsored by Visit Gloucestershire, SGGLA is the county’s biggest awards – now in its fifth year after first launching in 2018 to recognise and celebrate the very best lifestyle sector business and charities in and around Gloucestershire.
Following a spectacular celebration evening in 2021, when SGGLA returned to its real-life format to recognise the achievements of Gloucestershire’s resilient lifestyle sector throughout the pandemic, SGGLA 2022 promises to be bigger and better than ever before.
This year, there are 18 diverse categories – from the ever-popular and hotly anticipated Restaurant of the year, to the brand-new addition of Art Gallery of the year – for local organisations of all shapes and sizes to get involved in.
There’s also the chance for a very special individual from Gloucestershire’s lifestyle sector to be recognised for going the extra mile for their organisation or community, as nominations are now open for the new Outstanding Contribution Award, too.
Plus, all businesses in the running are in with the chance of being named overall Business of the Year – with the winner of this special award being chosen by headline sponsor Visit Gloucestershire, from the list of winners across all categories.
To find out more and enter the SoGlos Gloucestershire Lifestyle Awards 2022, visit soglos.com/awards-lifestyle.
Nominations must be made through an official representative of the company – so remember to send your favourite Gloucestershire businesses a link to this page if you want to see them in the running. While anyone can nominate an individual for the new Outstanding Contribution Award.
