Entries have opened for awards, organised by Marketing Peak District & Derbyshire, which celebrate the county’s tourism industry.

Applications for the 2023 Peak District & Derbyshire Tourism Awards are now officially open, with businesses urged to enter for the chance to gain prestigious local and national recognition.

Organised for the third year by Marketing Peak District & Derbyshire, the area’s official destination management organisation, the awards recognise excellence and outstanding achievement in the Peak District and Derbyshire’s tourism sector.

There are 16 categories in total covering different aspects of the visitor economy, from hotels, B&Bs and campsites to visitor attractions, unique experiences and local food and drink.

The awards also recognise the hardworking teams and individuals behind local businesses and a new Young Chef of the Year category has been introduced for 2023 to shine a light on the talented young people pursuing careers in hospitality.

Applications for the awards are open until 1 September and finalists will be revealed in October.

Gold winners in each of the 13 core categories will progress on to the VisitEngland Awards for Excellence for the chance to achieve national glory.

Jo Dilley, managing director of Marketing Peak District & Derbyshire, said: “The Peak District & Derbyshire Tourism Awards are a celebration of our incredible tourism industry and the wonderful array of tourism businesses who are so deserving of recognition.

“Tourism plays a vital role in making the Peak District and Derbyshire such a special place to live, work and visit, and these awards also provide a perfect opportunity to recognise the teams and individuals who work hard to provide visitors with experiences to remember.

“Entering these locally aligned awards is the only way to qualify for the national VisitEngland Awards for Excellence, so we strongly encourage tourism businesses to submit their entries and help us to celebrate the best of what the destination has to offer.”
