Nomination and Judging Process

The One Dance UK Awards open for nominations each year on International Dance Day,  29th April. Nominations will be open to everyone, so please give some thought to who you wish to put forward for an award – we want all parts of the sector and all forms of dance to be recognised and celebrated so need you to help spread the word!

Once nominations have closed we will go through a process of shortlisting nominations with input from a panel of experts most relevant to the category. Each category will be judged by a unique panel made up of experts from the sector with the knowledge and experience relevant to the specific category.

Shortlists for each category will be announced in September and at this point we will open a public vote for a selection of the categories; Dance Personality of the Year, People’s Choice Award and Best Use of Dance by a Brand.
