We know this Christmas is a particularly busy time for many colleagues in the local public sector, and this year many teams are feeling the added pressure of COVID-19 response and recovery work. In recognition of this, to support you all  in celebrating your achievements with the best possible submission, we are extending the nomination deadline to Wednesday 6th January 2021, 11:59PM.

To help you to present your entry in the best way possible, and maximise your chances of winning, we have produced a short video to give you some hints and tips to submitting a successful Innovation Award Nomination. You can find this on the awards homepage. 

The Innovation Awards is an opportunity to share best practice and to celebrate often under-appreciated excellence and innovation in the local public sector. This is a great opportunity for you to join in the recognition of service and community improvement by submitting your nominations.

There are five award categories you can nominate for:

  • Connected Procurement and Commissioning
  • Transforming and Innovating Public Services
  • Effective Information Sharing and Security
  • iStandUK (data standards)
  • Partner Excellence
