The deadline to enter this year’s Third Sector Awards has been extended.

Entries for the awards, which celebrate the achievements of charities, voluntary organisations and social enterprises, are being accepted until midnight on 11 May with no additional charge.

After that, entries will be accepted until the final deadline of midnight on 18 May, subject to a late fee of £50.

There are 25 categories in this year’s awards, including the new Volunteer Team of the Year, which was created in response to feedback from the sector.

One of the changes to this year’s awards is that long-listed entries from three categories – Charity of the Year, Communications Team of the Year and Fundraising Team of the Year – will be invited to make presentations before judges as part of the process.

Claire Horton, chief executive of Battersea Dogs & Cats Home, who won the Charity Chief Executive award last year, will chair the panel of judges for this year’s awards.

Applications are still being accepted from senior people in the sector who would like to take part in the judging process. To register interest in becoming a judge, click here.

Entry to the awards costs £60 plus VAT per submission for organisations with annual incomes of less than £1m, £135 plus VAT for those between £1m and £5m and £205 plus VAT for organisations with incomes of more than £5m a year.

The Prison Radio Association, which developed and runs National Prison Radio, the world’s first national radio station for prisoners, was named Charity of the Year at last year’s awards.

This year’s winners will be announced at a black-tie dinner at the Marriott Grosvenor Square in London on the evening of 21 September.
