The successful individuals and companies will once again receive trophies specially commissioned for the ceremony. They will be designed and made by stained glass artist Ingrid Walker who hails from the Vale of Glamorgan.
The trophies she has designed for A&B Cymru have been inspired by Welsh Miners lamps and will feature illuminated landscapes of Wales, mounted on a hammered iron base.
