Nominees Announced For GBC Sports Awards

GBC yesterday announced the list of nominees for this year's GBC Sports Awards. The event is to be held at Grand Battery House on Tuesday 24th March. 

The awards ceremony will be broadcast live on GBC Television.

A statement from GBC follows below:

The GBC Sports team has again requested feedback from local sporting associations to assist in finalising shortlists across four main categories. As always, the response has been excellent. The categories are as follows:

 

- GBC Junior Team of the Year

- GBC Senior Team of the Year

- GBC Junior Individual of the Year

- GBC Senior Individual of the Year

The general public are invited to vote for their preferred nominees via designated premium line telephone numbers kindly issued by Gibtelecom. The telephone vote will account for 50% of the total result in each category, with the remaining 50% determined by a panel of local sports journalists and experts. A special points system will be used to establish the winner of each category; in the event of a tie, the highest placed nominee in the PANEL vote will be declared the winner.

As in other years, a special Lifetime Achievement Award will also be presented. The recipient of this award will be decided exclusively by the panel and be revealed as part of the awards ceremony.

A spokesperson for the GBC Sports Awards said: 'We are extremely excited about the prospect of bringing Gibraltar's sportspeople together to celebrate another excellent year for local sport. GBC would like to congratulate all the nominees on being shortlisted, and hope the public will continue to vote in large numbers as they always have". 

The GBC Sports Awards Panel, comprises of GBC Sports Co-ordinator John Shephard Jnr, and GBC Sports Reporters Robin Sheppard-Capurro, Melanie Guiliano and Davie Wilson, the Gibraltar Chronicle’s Stephen Ignacio, the President of the Gibraltar Island Games Association Linda Alvarez, GibSport’s Tyronne Avellano, and the CEO of the Gibraltar Sports and Leisure Authority; Reagan Lima.
