The award categories include the best independent bars, pubs, nightlife venues, cafes, restaurants, takeaways, hotels and B&B/guest houses.

In the retail categories boutique, medium and large retailers are included, as well as new stores and e-commerce businesses.

For leisure, hair/beauty salons, fitness centres and gyms, as well as family and kids attractions will battle it out for the top prizes.

Other awards will include recognition for the best advertising/marketing campaigns, and excellence in customer service.
