How to Nominate:

If you know of an African-Caribbean organisation, business or person in the United Kingdom who exhibits excellence in their community, please take this opportunity to tell us about them and have their work and efforts understood, appreciated and recognised by the wider community.  

Given the breadth and diversity of our beautiful community, the categories have been selected to reflect this as well as representing this year’s chosen theme.

Nominating is a simple process; you can nominate yourself, a company, an employee, a charity, an individual or anyone else who you consider worthy of a Bright recognition.  The easy-to-use, free online form only takes a few moments to complete, and you’re welcome to make as many different nominations from the various categories as you wish. 

Nominations can be made from abroad so long as the person nominated resides in the UK.

Nominees will be shortlisted by our experienced judging panel and will not be judged by the number of nominations each individual receives.  Shortlisted nominees will be invited to attend the event.
