The Lancashire Sports Awards nominations work closely with the Lancashire Districts and coincide with districts own awards. This means that we receive nominations from districts with their own awards ceremonies, the winners from these districts are then sent to us as nominees for the Lancashire Sports Awards.
However some districts do not have their own awards and in this case we accept nominations via our website. These nominations are then sent to district leads for consideration or sent to a panel who will then decide who goes through to the Lancashire Sports Awards nominations.
If your district awards are stated down below then please nominate via the links and emails provided. If it states that your district do not have their own awards then please nominate via our website.
