BABS Barbershopper of the Year Awards 2022

We are excited to announce that nominations for the 2022 BABS Barbershopper of the Year awards are now open!

As in previous years, the Board will be presenting two awards:

  • John Grant National Barbershopper of the Year
  • Joe Berry Young Barbershopper of the Year

These awards are presented to individuals who have made an exceptional contribution to their club, their region, or the Association as a whole during 2022. The contribution could take a number of forms; artistic, administrative, altruism, recruitment, promotional, etc, and any of these should be highlighted within the nomination.

Any BABS member or registered club can make a nomination.

If you do intend to make a nomination, there are a few rules to bear in mind:

  1. The nominee must be a current BABS member in good standing;
  2. Additionally, nominees for the Joe Berry award must be under the age of 26 as of 31st December 2022;
  3. Only current members of BABS in good standing may submit nominations;
  4. The recipients of each award will be chosen from the nominees by the BABS Board of Trustees, and their decision is final.

Please note that the winner of this award is not decided by popular vote but on the strength of the nominations. Therefore, while we may receive multiple nominations for an individual by coincidence, the number of nominations received for an individual will not have a bearing on the Board's final decision.

Nominations will close on Saturday 4th March 2023 at 11:59pm.

The winners will be announced at Sing2023 during the Sunday Closing Ceremony Concert of Champions, and each award recipient will receive a commemorative pin badge as well as a free place at BABS Harmony College.
