Entries are now open for the seventh annual Third Sector Excellence Awards, which recognise outstanding achievement and best practice in charities and voluntary organisations.
The 24 awards range from fundraising to campaigning and social enterprise. They include the popular Small Charity, Big Achiever category and a new award in the governance section for Charity Chair of the Year.
"We are confident that the standard of entries will be as high as ever, despite the harsh conditions many charities are now facing," said Stephen Cook, editor of Third Sector. "The sector often produces some of its best ideas in hard times."
The entry deadline is Thursday 5 May, when the entries will be put before a panel of expert judges drawn from the sector. The black-tie awards dinner will be on Wednesday 28 September.
