Terms and conditions:


1. You cannot nominate yourself or and organisation you work for


2. You cannot nominate Northside Bikes. As the host, main sponsor and promotor of the awards this would be in bad taste. You may nominate an employee or volunteer for their work at Northside Bikes or with another organisation - our people are awesome and we think all their work deserves recognition. We will not nominate them.


3. Nominations and voting can only take place on this website. Nominations on social media while appreciated and helpful for promoting the awards will not be counted.


4. Northside Bikes reserves the right to moderate nominations that do not fit into the awards categories by either rejecting nominations outright or changing the nomination category.


5. Award prizes cannot be exchanged for cash, vouchers or other prizes. Prizes not claimed within 60 days will be withdrawn.


6. Northside Bikes reserves the right to shortlist entries before the public vote.
