The early bird deadline to enter this year’s Third Sector Awards is rapidly approaching.
Charities and not-for-profits have until 11:59pm on 19 May to submit applications for this year’s awards at a reduced entry rate.
The annual awards celebrate the work of charities and the difference they make to society. There are 31 categories available to enter, including Communications Campaign of the Year and Volunteer Team of the Year.
The awards also include a scheme to spotlight the successes of small, micro, local and BAME-led charities, by offering a batch of free-entry places to charities with an annual income of less than £100,000.
Entries will be judged by an independent panel of sector experts co-chaired by Adam Tulloch, chief executive of Total Insight Theatre, and Amanda Khozi Mukwashi, the former chief executive of Christian Aid.
Khozi Mukwashi and Tulloch each won awards for Charity Chief Executive of the Year at the 2021 Third Sector Awards.
Emily Burt, editor of Third Sector, said: “There has been little by way of respite for the charity sector in 2022, with ongoing pandemic pressures and a looming cost-of-living crisis.
“But the sector continues to demonstrate its immense capacity for driving positive change, and we look forward to celebrating the many successes of our entrants at the awards later this year.”
The headline sponsor for this year’s awards is the insurance company Ansvar. Additional sponsors include Atos, Enthuse, Trust Impact and the awards' creative partner The Good Agency.
The awards ceremony will take place at a lunchtime reception hosted at The Brewery in central London on 30 September.
