Awards will be judged by members of the Active York Board and a wider shortlisting committee, which includes sporting partners from across the city.

The leading nominees in each category will then be invited to attend the Active York Sports Awards. The ceremony will take place at the University of York on Wednesday, 26 June 2019.
