The shortlist for the 2020 White Rose Awards has been revealed with 92 finalists in the running.

The District has nominations in most categories, but has failed to have nominations in Arts & Culture.

Welcome to Yorkshire Chief Executive James Mason said:

Huge congratulations to everyone who has made it onto this year’s shortlist of finalists for the White Rose Awards. The ceremony is one of Welcome to Yorkshire’s fantastic flagship events and it will be a real privilege to be able to honour the shining  stars of Yorkshire tourism, particularly during such a tough year for all in this hardworking sector.

Once again, competition has been tough, with exceptionally high  standards, incredible innovation and many excellent examples of business brilliance demonstrated across the county. This will be a fabulous opportunity to promote and celebrate all that’s great about Yorkshire. Good luck to everyone!

 

White Rose Awards Chair Elaine Lemm said:

During a difficult year for so many, it’s been such a positive experience for the White Rose Award’s panel of prestigious industry-wide experts to see the excellent entries this year. The standard, has again, been incredibly impressive and has made choosing 2020 finalists pretty difficult. However, it’s truly inspiring to see the range of  fabulous venues and wonderful attractions out there, offering such high levels of service in this beautiful county. As always, it is easy to see why Yorkshire has an outstanding and continued reputation for top-class tourism and hospitality excellence.

There are 17 categories in total for 2020 and the winner of each category will be ranked as gold, with the two runners up being rated silver and bronze.
