The Atlantic Award Group is delighted to be celebrating it’s fifth concurrent year of the Haliwards in Halifax, Nova Scotia, aided by it’s presenting sponsor, Investors Group, Halifax. Over the past five years we’ve touched the lives of many Haligonians through our awards, and today we’re excited to launch our 2014 project which will be a little different from the previous years.

From here-on we are excited to be welcoming nominations from all over the province. Our project was born and bred in HRM but we want to expand our reach to everyone in NS. We have no plans to move the locations of our presentations and the name of the awards will remain the same.

Not only will we be accepting nominations from all over the province, but we’ll be welcoming those nominations throughout the year. We’re scrapping the deadlines for your submissions. From now on you can place a nomination whenever you want too. If your nominations doesn’t get to us in time for that years selection it will be considered the following year. As always we wan’t you to nominate anyone or anything for the extraordinary things that they do. The possibilities are endless.

We’re not just making changes to our nominations, we’re also introducing a new award. Up until now, we’ve had no categories to allow you to nominate anyone without having to tag it’s type or content. This year alongside our regular “haliward” presentations, we are introducing a new award. This award won’t be exclusive to Nova Scotia either. It will encompass the entire country, but we’re proud to launch the award in Halifax. We’ll tell you more about this award in the new year. Needless to say we’re excited about it.

As many of you know, we normally hold an award ceremony to celebrate our awards, but this year we’re going to do things a little differently. We’re in the midst of planning multiple presentations that will take place over the next few months. Some of the award recipients will be informed prior to the presentations but others will be surprised on the spot. You’ll be able to stay up to date with our presentations via our website and social accounts on Facebook & Twitter. We hope this open format will allow everyone to get involved with this years awards.

We’d like to thank the people of HRM for supporting our award scheme and thank Investors Group, Halifax for investing in the extraordinary people of this great city.
