Time is running out for you to vote for your stars of the arts for this year's EDP People's Choice awards.

The three accolades are part of the Hostry Festival's Norfolk Arts Awards, and the idea is to give our readers the chance to celebrate their cultural champions.

The EDP People's Choice Awards are for best individual, best small organisation and best large organisation, and there are 10 finalists in each category.

They are all currently competing in a public vote on the Eastern Daily Press website and voting ends on Sunday.

So far more than 6,000 people have cast their votes.

Stash Kirkbride, co-founder of the Norfolk Arts Awards and the Hostry Festival, said: 'It's great to see so many people from all over the county joining in with the EDP People's Choice Awards. There is just days left, so make sure you have your say and vote in these three exciting categories. I'm really looking forward to finding out who the final three will be in each category.'

Last year's EDP People's Choice Awards winners were Felthorpe-based artist Matt Reeve, Norwich Arts Centre and the GoGoDragons! charity art trail, brought to Norwich by children's charity Break and Wild in Art.

The final three in each category will be revealed in the Eastern Daily Press and the winners will be announced at the Norfolk Arts Awards which will take place at Norwich Cathedral's Hostry on Friday, October 21.

The Norfolk Arts Awards is part of the Hostry Festival which will this year run from October 15 to 30.
