Help Compile This Year's Shortlist

We want your help to compile this year's shortlist. So, we've opened up some of the categories for nominations and we need your help shaping some of the other categories' shortlists by telling us who you think deserves recognition in these categories, especially in our new Paranormal Unsung Hero category.

The big categories like Best Female Ghost HunterBest Male Ghost HunterBest Paranormal Reality Show and Best Paranormal Movie are not open to nominations. This is because the shortlists for these categories are determined by mainstream television and movie releases.

You can nominate all forms of content created from traditional broadcast, online streaming, social and print, as well as celebrating the stars and creators of that content - as long as it's paranormal.

The term "programme" in the category description can refer to either a television show, podcast episode or web series episode. The programme or work must have been released between November 1st, 2018 to October 31st, 2019. A nomination in the people categories must be someone who has featured in work published within the same time frame.

Nominations will close on October 20th and we will reveal the shortlist and open up the awards for public voting on November 1st. You can nominate right now on our 2019 awards page.

You'll be familiar with most of the categories from last year's awards, however we have introduced a couple of new ones to help less smaller content creators get the recognition they deserve alongside some of the big players in the paranormal world.

This year there are two new categories aimed at online content creators only. They are Best Online Ghost Hunter and Best Online Investigation Team. We're also asking you to pick the Best Skeptic and Best Psychic this year.

There's a new Best Paranormal Event category and we'll also be honouring this year's Best Paranormal Blogger.

If you have any suggestions for who should be in these categories, then now is the time to tell us. You can nominate here before October 20th.
