Wakefield Civic Society Environment Awards 2022

Entries for our 2022 Environment Awards are now invited

The Society has been making awards for good design since 1966. Two years ago, and influenced by increased public and governmental focus on climate change and the need to protect the environment, the Society introduced new awards aimed specifically at environmental schemes. Although we did not run any awards in 2021 because of the Covid pandemic, we have decided the time is now right to offer Environment Awards once again.

This year, our Environment Awards will recognise projects that demonstrate innovation, imagination and good practice in nature conservation, the promotion of environmental quality and support of the wider goals of sustainable development. Cash prizes of £100 per award will be given.

The Awards are open to any individual, business or organisation with a suitable project in the Society’s ‘area of benefit’. We particularly welcome entries from community groups, youth groups and schools.

The deadline for entries is 5pm on Friday, 4th March. Ideally, entries will be submitted electronically (via email or WeTransfer.com for larger files) using the official entry form which can be downloaded below. Where this is not possible, entries can be posted to us at our PO Box address.

Results will be announced at the Society’s Annual General Meeting to be held on the evening of 28th April 2022 (an event which may be held on-line or in person at the discretion of the Society’s Executive Committee and depending on the Covid situation at the time).

The number of awards offered will be at the discretion of the Society, informed by the number and quality of entries received.

The decision of the judging panel is final.
