Volunteers from BTCV Scotland, Sense and the Dulwich Picture Gallery are among those short-listed for the Third Sector Excellence Awards Volunteer of the Year.
The winners of all 12 categories will be announced at a black-tie dinner on 18 September at the Grosvenor House Hotel, London.
Other categories include Small Charity, Big Achiever, which celebrates small, innovative organisations that are successful nationally or regionally, and best Corporate Partnership.
"The short lists suggest that charities are tackling a time of rapid change with plenty of confidence and some touches of real brilliance," said Third Sector editor Stephen Cook.
The British Heart Foundation, British Red Cross and Whizz-Kidz are among those shortlisted for the Fundraising Team of the Year.
