Nominations for Yorkshire tourism 'Oscars' revealed

Published at 12:35pm 26th June 2015. (Updated at 7:03pm 26th June 2015)

Nearly 100 businesses have been shortlisted as the cream of the crop in Yorkshire tourism.

Categories for the annual White Rose Awards include the best attractions, hotels, B&Bs, restaurants and pubs.

More than 1,000 people will come together for a spectacular awards dinner to recognise and reward the finest tourism businesses throughout Yorkshire.

Colin Mellor, chairman of the White Rose Awards judges, said: "Every year, the field of entries seems to get stronger and stronger and this year’s awards are certainly no exception.

"We've had a record number of entries, almost a third of which are first-time entrants, which is a real testament to the growing tourism offering in Yorkshire."

Gary Verity, Chief Executive of Welcome to Yorkshire, added: "I'm delighted for all the Yorkshire businesses who have been nominated for a White Rose Award.

"They were up against some incredibly tough competition, so to be shortlisted is testament to their hard work and commitment to Yorkshire’s fantastic tourism industry. We look forward to celebrating with you all on the night!"

The date and location for the White Rose Awards 2015 will be announced in the coming weeks.
