The group of private clubs launches the Soho House Awards to celebrate emerging talent and industry established figures.
With ten categories – from music and art to acting and design, maker and changemaker – there will be two award winners per category, honoring one established name and one breakthrough star, both selected for their defining achievements and success over the past 12 months.
The winners will be chosen by a committee of Soho House experts in film, art, music, content and creative.
The Breakthrough Entrepreneur Award is chosen from a shortlist of nominees submitted by participants from Soho Mentorship and Soho Chance.
Both initiatives are part of House Foundations, a Soho House program that focuses on providing opportunities to access the creative industries for people from lower socioeconomic or underrepresented backgrounds.
Soho Mentorship matches members with young creatives to increase their connections, trust and experience.
Soho Chance is for emerging entrepreneurs to start a project using the resources and infrastructure of Soho House.
The inaugural Soho House Awards, in partnership with Sky, will take place on September 1, 2022 at a ceremony at 180 House, London, where all winners will be announced and receive their awards.
The awards will be broadcast on Soho House’s digital platforms, including Instagram and TikTok, with winners announced throughout the night and special music performances.
Nick Jones, Founder and CEO of Soho House, said: “Members who support other members are the core of Soho House. Our membership enables people with established careers to connect with emerging talent, giving them opportunities to thrive. The Soho House Awards are the perfect way for us to celebrate people at all stages of their creative journeys, I can’t wait to see the nominations.”
The full list of categories is Actor, Breakthrough Actor, Actress, Breakthrough Actress, Entrepreneur, Breakthrough Entrepreneur, Writer, Breakthrough Writer, Musician, and Breakthrough Musician.
