Today is the first closing date for entries for this year's Prolific North Awards - the  largest single creative industries awards outside London.

Entries submitted today will cost £75 + VAT each. After that - and up until the final closing date of next Friday - there will be a late submission fee, meaning a cost of £100 + VAT each.

Taking place on Thursday May 11th, the event will for the first time be held at EventCity in Trafford Park near Manchester.

Comedian, actor, writer and radio presenter Justin Moorhouse is back as host. Last year, the dinner attracted 800 guests.
