With a turnout level higher than most general elections, and plenty of buzz on the Twittersphere (which, I believe, is what the kids call it), we’ve been quite frankly amazed at the response to our first ever Northern Lights Awards nominations.

And now we’re asking for one final push, as voting for the awards closes THIS FRIDAY, and if you haven’t had your say yet then the time is ripe to do just that!

You see, in true North East friendly fashion we really care what you guys think, and your votes will play a major part in our decision making, so don’t miss the chance to nominate your favourite.

To jog your memory and get those cultural juices flowing once more, here are the categories for the 2014 Northern Lights Awards (simply click the pictures to find the nominees and to cast your vote):
