Have your say

Time is running out for our readers to help us celebrate the best in arts, culture and entertainment from across our region as part of our annual Guide Awards.

You can vote in all 13 categories either online, by text, or by using the form in today’s Guide.

The event is held in association with the Kings Theatre and is a fantastic way of highlighting the quality of arts and culture in our area. The awards for 2014 take place at the historic Southsea venue on Monday, January 26, 2015.

Vote for your favourite, or you can nominate anyone we haven’t mentioned who you think deserves to win.

Winners will be announced on the evening after nominations have been cut down to shortlists of six.

The night will also include our Special Achievement Award, plus some great entertainment.

And we’ll also be inviting you to apply for free tickets.

The closing date for voting is midnight on Sunday, December 14.
