The National Lottery Awards are an annual search to find the UK's favourite Lottery-funded projects. Lottery players raise £33 million each week for projects all across the UK and the Awards are a great way to highlight how that funding has changed the UK for the better.
Now in their tenth year, the Awards recognise the incredible difference that Lottery-funded projects have made to people, places and communities all across the UK with the 400,000 grants that have been made since 1994. They also celebrate the talent, hard work and amazing dedication of the people involved in running them.
Awards are given across seven categories, reflecting the different types of projects that benefit from National Lottery funding. These are: Art, Education, Environment, Health, Heritage, Sport and Charity/Voluntary.
The National Lottery Awards 2013 are brought to you in association with the Telegraph.
