If you would like to nominate someone for multiple categories, please complete a separate form for each nomination. 


Winners will be determined by the ENT UK membership via a ballot managed using the Mi-Voice online e-voting platform. Prior to this, nominations will undergo a vetting process, carried out by ENT UK/BACO, to ensure each is eligible in the category to which it has been entered. ENT UK members will then be sent individual voting credentials by email, which will allow eligible members to vote once in each of the five awards categories. Voting opens 23 March 2020 and closes 20 April 2020.
