performanceFor the first time in our 20 year history, The Independent will present an array of community awards to celebrate all the talent that we have in Southern Utah.

Each category will carry a “People’s Choice” and an “Editors’ Choice” winner. Over the next ten day, we will open nominations for one category a day. Nominations for all categories will remain open until November 1. All nominees must be current residents of Southern Utah or be business local to Southern Utah.

Voting for the People’s Choice categories will take place on The Independent website during November.

Winners for both the People’s Choice and Editors’ Choice awards will be announced on The Independent website and in our print edition in January 2017.

Today, we open the nominating period for our performance arts awards!

Don’t forget that you can still make your nominations for our visual arts awards

Nominations open this week for the first ever Independent Awards
