Aber First Awards

The Aber First Awards are designed to acknowledge the hard work and outstanding contributions displayed by individuals, organisations, and businesses in the Aberystwyth area.

There are twelve awards in total each designed to reward a different category of outstanding performance together with a further Overall Business of the year Award. Up to three finalists in each category are selected through a rigorous process of application, short-listing and final judging by an independent panel of experts. You can submit a self-application or nominate someone else one of our ten award categories.

Last years awards took place at the Aberystwyth Arts Centre, with around 130 guests from local businesses and organisations eager to find out who were the winners in the twelve Award categories. Ioan Guile, the Master of Ceremonies for the evening, kept the audience entertained and engaged throughout the presentations.

Businesses and organisations in the Menter Aberystwyth area were able to enter the category most relevant to their business and who could demonstrate excellence in it. There was also the Aberystwyth University Business of the Year Award for the most outstanding winner overall. The full results list can be found under 2019 Winners & Finalists section of our website.
