All nominees in the nine categories were considered by an independent judging panel. Chairman of the panel, Guy Opperman MP said, "The standard of the nominees was extremely high and it was no easy task to shortlist for each Award as each and every one of them deserves recognition.  However, we feel that we have selected nominees who represent the dedication and commitment of those involved in the excellent work carried out by UK air ambulance charities.”

The winners will be announced at an awards ceremony being held on the 18th November 2013.  A full list of the nominees can be found by visiting the Association of Air Ambulances website HERE.
