The Mayo Style Awards, organised by the Connaught Telegraph and ran in conjunction with the Breaffy House Resort, Specsavers, and associate sponsors, aim to honour local businesses in Mayo for their fashion, beauty and lifestyle.
Entries into the awards opened in July and we, the Connaught Telegraph, received a large volume of entries from top quality businesses. Businesses had the option of entering themselves, for free, into two out of our ten categories. Our independent judging panel had very tough decisions to make when shortlisting each category in order to pick their top 3.
Each finalist has voting details for the public to vote & support them. The votes will help the judges decide who the winner of each category will be. The voting details can be found below. Voting starts today (Tuesday 25th August) and closes Monday 7th September at midday. Each votes costs €1. To see T&C's of voting please scroll to the bottom.
