A shortlist of nominees will be considered for an award by a panel of Trailblazers, who represent various industries.

Roni Edwards, founder of Pamodzi Creatives said: ‘We don’t call the award recipients winners but simply award recipients. This is because Pamodzi means together, and we very much see the individuals recognised in our awards as individuals representing the tribe of people who believe in them and champion them.’ Tickets to the awards Ceremony will be £18 plus a booking fee and available from Eventbrite.
