The second Inner City Enterprise (ICE) Awards will be sponsored by Irish Distillers Pernod Ricard and will take place on Thursday 11 May in the Old Jameson Distillery in Dublin.
The annual awards was established last year to 'advise and assist unemployed people in Dublin’s inner city to set up their own businesses or to create direct self-employment'.
The short-listed nominees for the annual event has also been been announced.
Evanne Kilmurray, Inner City Enterprise CEO, said: “ICE decided to hold an awards event to acknowledge and reward its clients many of whom have struggled against the odds to get a business established and then keep it up and running. We are delighted with the short-list we have for this year’s awards."
This years nominees in the Best Female Category include, Helen Walsh - Helen Walsh , Melissa Curley - Social Bee, Holly Pereira - Hyper Pictures; The Best Male includes Daniel Cantwell - Ben & Anvil, Shane Burke -The Stylish Guy, Shane Sutton - Teddybots and in the Best Newcomer: Karen Tynan - K-Star Academy, Russell Simmons -The Greedy Pig, Dr. Siobhán Hargis - Stroll Dublin.
"The nine individuals selected are a true reflection of the work of ICE, but also of the determination, creativity and truly positive mind-set of the finalists. Irrespective of the outcome on the night, they are all winners.” Kilmurray added.
The ICE Awards, which are also supported by KPMG and AL Goodbody, are open to all Inner City Enterprise clients who currently own, control and manage their own business.
