This is Manchester Awards will showcase the incredible talent Manchester has at its heart, the best of the best!

Britain’s Second City, The Capital of the North, Manchester is a footballing Mecca for millions of people worldwide, home to two of the most recognisable Premier League football clubs in the world.

The World’s FIRST Industrial City with a deep-rooted industrial heritage, earning Manchester its nickname “Cottonopolis” during the 19th Century. The growth doesn’t stop there, Manchester has continued to develop with the times and is a city at the heart of progression and production; not just at home but globally. In fact, did you know – with a population of 2.5 million, Manchester is the most linguistically diverse city in Western Europe with 200 spoken languages.

Manchester is renowned for its music scene. The birthplace of Joy Division, The Smiths, Stone Roses, Take That, Oasis, Elbow, The Courteeners, Blossoms and so many more successful musicians. Music truly defines Manchester, home to major global concert promoters,  SJM Concerts and the iconic Manchester Arena, a world-class venue which hosts some of the biggest global music artists with an audience of 17,000. Surely that’s something to shout about!
As if that wasn’t enough, we have a thriving fashion industry with major brands established in the city that sit alongside a global industry.

This Is Manchester Awards will champion and recognise individuals and organisations rooted in Manchester within; fashion, entertainment, sports, hospitality, food & drink, the night time economy as well as individuals & organisations who have contributed to the community within Manchester and beyond.
