The accreditation process for the fifth annual LG ICC Awards ceremony, which takes place in Dubai on 10 September, closes in three days.

Journalists wishing to attend and cover the event may apply for accreditation direct to the ICC. Please reply to sheila.razdan@icc-cricket.com stating your name, organisation, contact details and enclosing a passport-style jpeg photograph (between 250KB and 750KB). The closing date for applications is 4 September.

The event was due to be staged in Lahore ahead of the ICC Champions Trophy but with that tournament being postponed, it will now go ahead in Dubai, where the ICC has its headquarters. The venue will be The Westin Hotel, Al Sufouh Road, close to Dubai Media City and doors will open from 1900.

As in previous years, there will be a fully appointed media centre set up for working journalists on the night with access to each of the award winners immediately after they have left the stage.

This year’s LG ICC Awards includes eight individual prizes, including a new one for the Twenty20 International Performance of the Year.

It also features the selection of the Test and ODI Teams of the Year and the award to the side that has adhered most to the Spirit of Cricket.

The nominations for six of the awards were made by a five-man ICC selection panel chaired by West Indies legend Clive Lloyd. The panel also includes former Australia captain Greg Chappell, recently retired South Africa all-rounder Shaun Pollock, former Sri Lanka opener Sidath Wettimuny and former Bangladesh batsman Athar Ali Khan. This panel will also select the ICC Test and ODI teams of the year.

The winners of these six individual awards will be voted upon by a 25-person panel from around the world, made up of renowned former players, respected members of the media, and an elite umpire and elite match referee.

Meanwhile, the nominations for the Women’s Cricketer of the Year Award were decided after each of the world’s top 10 teams was given the opportunity to nominate two players. This award will be voted on by a separate 16-person voting academy featuring former players and other experts on the women’s game.

The Spirit of Cricket Award will be voted on by all the international captains as well as all members of the Emirates Elite Panel of ICC Umpires and Emirates Elite Panel of ICC Match Referees. The Umpire of the Year Award is voted on by the captains and the match referees.

This year sees the introduction of a new award, the Twenty20 International Performance of the Year Award, which will mark an outstanding individual effort in this newest format of the international game.

Also, the Associate ODI Player of the Year Award has been upgraded to the Associate Player of the Year Award and serves to recognise and reward the efforts in ODIs and other international matches of the outstanding cricketer from the six countries outside the ICC Full Members, namely Bermuda, Canada, Ireland, Kenya, the Netherlands and Scotland.

Based on the 12 months between 9 August 2007 and 12 August 2008, the LG ICC Awards 2008 – presented in association with FICA – will take into account performances by players and officials in a remarkable period for the game. That period includes the inaugural ICC World Twenty20 2007 in South Africa.

The LG ICC Awards ceremony is now in its fifth year and this will be the first time it has been staged in Dubai. Previous ceremonies were held in London (2004), Sydney (2005), Mumbai (2006) and Johannesburg (2007).
