Are we there yet? Countdown to November 1st

The 2012 Finalists list is out. The Technical categories and Gaeilge will be out on Thursday and will be added to that list. Tickets are now on sale for €30. If you know one of the Finalists, let them know they made the list, in case they never noticed. (It happens)

About the event itself:

  • The ceremony takes place in the Mansion House, Dublin.
  • Doors open at 7pm for an 8pm hard start.
  • There is no sit-down meal, we have the awards given out from 8.15pm onwards, the seating is theatre style.
  • There is finger food after the ceremony (around 10pm)
  • It is informal attire, no tuxes are required. Bow ties are cool though. Just saying…
  • All winners get to make a thank you speech. Highly emotional speeches are not frowned upon.
  • If you win, go to the stage, collect the very heavy trophy, make your thank you speech, leave stage right and have your photo taken with the sponsor.
  • The running order is as the category list here.
