The finalists for the Best of Vintage Norwich Awards at Norwich Fashion Week have been announced - so who will you vote for?

The finalists for the Vintage Norwich Awards have been announced.

The awards, part of Norwich Fashion Week 2013, highlight the growing vintage scene in Norwich with retro-inspired cafes, club nights, boutiques, stylists and designers all vying for a place in the final over the past few weeks.

The public were asked to vote for their favourite vintage businesses in 11 categories and the top three receiving the most votes in each group are going on to the final awards ceremony on March 11.

Gemma Seager, editor of the Vintage Norwich website, who is hosting the awards, is overwhelmed at the response so far:

'We had almost 500 nomination forms through this year which is over three times as many as we had for the first awards in 2012,' Ms Seager said.

'Nominations in some categories were so close that the top three were changing several times a day
