People can nominate work they feel deserving of recognition here. You need to make nominations in at least three categories for them to be accepted.

The awards ceremony will be on Sunday, 31 May, at Vout-O-Reenees, 30 Prescott Street, London E1 8BB, with a book fair, performances and panel discussions from 2-6pm, and the awards from 6.30-10pm.

Last year’s spoken word performer winner, Steve Nash, pictured, said: "Winning the Performer of the Year title in 2014 came as a huge surprise, and I’ll never be convinced I deserved such an accolade, but … regardless of how far my humble words take me, that adorable little trophy I was presented with last year will always have pride of place on the mantelpiece."
