With a record amount of over 1800 nominations this year, it’s time to vote for your favourite Leeds indies in eight categories to determine who will be walking away with a trophy on 4 November.

We’re delighted to announce that voting has now opened for Leeds Independent Awards 2016, with eight categories to choose from.

There are ten finalists in each category, as the competition was so fierce we just couldn’t narrow it down any further. Now it’s up to YOU to decide who will win. Voting will close at midnight on Friday 30 September.

PLEASE NOTE: To ensure fairness this system only records your first set of votes. All other votes on the same IP are eliminated.

**VOTING HAS NOW CLOSED**
