Following up to positive feedback about the idea of showing some appreciation to athletes, coaches, companies and people involved in Irish bodybuilding.

The Nominations

I took upon myself to pick categories and short list the names.
Big thank you to people who message me – pointed mistakes and give suggestions, some of you provided very good information and all been taken into consideration.
Last year I followed bodybuilding scene closely, but considering that within UK and Ireland we had shows running across record breaking number of organization (to name some NABBA, PCA, Fit X, NFMUK/GBO, GPO, UKBFF&RIBBF/ELITEPRO, NPC/IFBB PRO, BNBF, WNBF/PNBA, ICN, NFBA, NIFMA, NPA, UKDFBA, IBFA ) plus international events and aspect that some of these are tested and untested you must take into consideration that there is no right way to approach this and it took me several hours of research (mainly on social media) as less and less show results being posted anywhere these days – hence creation of this project run in the spare time as a hobby.

It is nice to be important, but it’s more important to be nice.

John Templeton (some may know it as well from that Scooter song)
