Your nominations are in, and the shortlists prepared. Now it’s over to you to vote for your favourite in 10 of the 14 categories via our online voting system. All votes are FREE.

In light of the ongoing coronavirus situation, it is with great regret that we have decided to cancel the presentation evening for the Fishing News Awards 2020, previously scheduled for May 14th.

The Awards programme will otherwise continue as planned. The voting process continues in those categories that require it. Voting closes at midnight on April 17th and winners will be selected as planned.

The results will be announced in the May 21st issue of Fishing News, here on our website  and via our Twitter account @yourfishingnews #fishingnewsawards

*Voting is open until midnight on April 17th 2020
