The nominated events will then be featured in the Lynn News the following week, when we will open a readers’ vote to find the winner.

The three finalists will be announced after voting finishes on February 8.

The award will be presented at the Mayor’s Business Awards ceremony at the Corn Exchange in Lynn on Friday, March 3.

Last year’s inaugural event saw 10 nomination and fierce competition to be a winner with Festival Too the runner-up and the Hanseatic Water-ski Races on the River Ouse taking top spot.

Here on these pages we have pictured a few that are worthy of consideration, such as the Heritage Open Day, the Tornado Trail, and Festival Too.

But there are many others that will be equally worthwhile – so let us know what your favourite was of the year and see if other people agree.
