The 25th Birthday National Lottery Awards
The 25th Birthday National Lottery Awards is the annual search to find the UK's favourite Lottery-funded projects and the people. The Awards are a great way of celebrating the ordinary people doing extraordinary things with National Lottery funding.
This year, the Awards will reflect our 25 year legacy, giving us a fantastic opportunity to celebrate projects and people who have benefitted from National Lottery funding over the last quarter of a century. So if you’re receiving funding now or you received it in the past but no longer do, you are eligible to enter.
Nominations for The 25th Birthday National Lottery Awards are now open. Click the blue button on the right to nominate yourself or one of your favourite projects!
Nominations close on the 30th April at midnight. National Lottery Awards winners will receive a £10,000 cash prize and national recognition at a glittering ceremony broadcast on BBC One in the Autumn.
