The Ulster Tatler Awards features 14 categories voted for by the public, with shortlists in each category compiled from votes cast before judging panels of media and industry experts select their winners. The winners will then be announced at a glamorous ceremony on September 8 at St. Anne’s Cathedral, Belfast presented once again by much-loved TV personality Pamela Ballantine.

Chris Sherry, Editor of Ulster Tatler, said: “The wealth of talent we have here in Northern Ireland is outstanding in numerous fields, particularly the endless flair we see in business, sport and entertainment.

“The difficulty in choosing just one deserved winner becomes greater each year and that speaks volumes on how high the standard is across the province.

“We’re delighted to be returning to the stunning St. Anne’s Cathedral this year to celebrate the businesses and people who have shone throughout the past year across Northern Ireland.
