The 2020 National Lottery Awards

Nominations for the 2020 National Lottery Awards are now open.

The National Lottery Awards celebrate the ordinary people who do extraordinary things with the help of National Lottery funding.

This year,for the first time, the Awards will, honour individuals who have made an extraordinary impact in their community especially those who have adapted during the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.

There will be no public vote, but your nominations will be put before a judging panel made up of members of The National Lottery family and partners who will crown which of our hometown heroes or lockdown legends will pick up a coveted National Lottery Awards trophy and a £3,000 cash prize for their project.

We are looking for individuals or small groups of people who have made an outstanding contribution in any of the categories below. Young Hero nominees should be under 18 years of age and all suggestions must have been either funded by the National Lottery or be associated with a project which has received National Lottery funding. If you are not sure, don’t worry, nominate them anyway, and our team will check it out.
