Love Barrow Awards Season

The Love Barrow Awards starts with nominations, with a big push in the Autumn and they finish with the awards night in the Spring.  The awards is where our local heroes are recognised in a night they will always remember!

The awards seek to share the night so that everyone hears about the great people in your neighbourhood.  We do this with help from our amazing local community, local press / radio and through Facebook and Twitter.

People don’t do the amazing things they do for praise or recognition but that does not mean they should not be rewarded!



How the Love Barrow Awards work

To begin with, members of the public nominate across several awards.  To be chosen as a Love Barrow Awards finalist only takes one nomination.  Next, a special panel of judges made up of previous finalists and members of the public and commitee members, selects the final 3 for each award.  A difficult job to do!

So difficult in fact that we have opened up the Love Barrow Awards to the public through the People’s Choice Award.  This is a special category made up of all the short listed finalists and voted for by the people of Barrow and the Furness area.

While the voting happens, the 3 finalists for each award get the chance to talk about their story to our friendly film crew. The awards night is the premiere for these stories.

Finally, the countdown to the Love Barrow Awards begins!  The awards take place in the heart of Barrow where a red carpet reception and luxury meal awaits the nominees.

“The Love Barrow Awards night is a unique event that never fails to evoke laughter, pride and maybe one or two tears but always a sense of how inspiring it is to live and work in the area.”
