NABMA want to thank Blachere for their sponsorship support which enables us to make these Awards and Manchester City Council for their continued support of the Krys Zasada Award. NABMA also want to thank all the people who have submitted nominations which gave the judges lots of difficult decisions to make on the eventual recipients.
