Winners will receive a prize package that aims to support and promote their work in uncertain times. The winner of each category will be awarded £1,000 along with a bespoke package of support equivalent to 1 days worth of expert support in areas such as strategic communications and professional coaching and leadership development. We will also make a short film about their work which will be premiered at our award ceremony in January 2021 and which can help projects promote their work going forward.
This money is to spend on whatever the project / group feels is most urgent to sustain and grow their work. Previous award winners have found it valuable to have a pot of unrestricted funding.
In unprecedented times, we want to be able to give winning projects/ organisations support that will be of real use to them and their target communities. We will create a bespoke prize package, following input from award winners. This could include a strategic communications workshop run by On Road Media and professional 1-1 coaching session or group workshop with Nicola Parker.

Important note about filming: As soon as winners are informed, we will need to schedule a day of filming (this may be split over two days depending on the availability of the film maker). Please be aware that the filming will be scheduled between 4th January – 18th January. Winning projects will need to be fairly flexible in terms of their availability in this time frame so please bare this in mind. We will, of course, do our best to find the most convenient date but we will require input from the key contact/ project manager in order to schedule the filming and plan the content. In the past, winners have found these films a helpful resource for their promotional work. You can watch previous films on our You Tube Channel. Please note, all filming plans are contingent upon national and local Covid-19 restrictions and we will monitor this closely. We will do our best to be as creative and flexible as possible in the circumstances :)
All winners will also receive a certificate, a branded email/ website banner to promote their award and written feedback from the judges about the value of their work.
In order to recognise all the incredible work happening throughout challenging times we will also be awarding commendations to shortlisted projects that are doing particularly effective or notable work. All commendations will be recognised at the Awards Ceremony.

• A certificate
• A branded email banner
• A written commendation from the judging panel
All shortlisted projects will receive:
• A branded email banner
• Written feedback that could help to develop their work.
