Entries for the Third Sector Awards, which celebrate the work of charities and the difference they make to society, have opened for 2024.
There are 32 categories rewarding sector partnerships, individual talent and organisational excellence, including Communications Campaign of the Year, which in 2023 was won by the maternity discrimination charity Pregnant Then Screwed.
Nominations have also opened for the awards judging panel.
The awards continue to include a scheme to spotlight the successes of small, micro, local and ethnic minority-led charities by offering a batch of free-entry places to charities with an annual income of less than £100,000.
The deadline for eligible charities to register interest for an entry is 27 March. Successful small and micro charity entrants will be invited to attend a free workshop hosted by Third Sector, which will include practical advice and guidance on submitting a winning entry.
The 2024 Third Sector Awards are sponsored by Ansvar.
Emily Burt, editor of Third Sector, said: “The Third Sector Awards are an opportunity to celebrate the achievements of charities and the invaluable contributions of those who work for them.
“In times of volatility it is never more important to recognise the difference that the voluntary sector makes to our society. We look forward to celebrating with you later this year.”
The early bird deadline for entering the awards is 2 May and the standard deadline is 23 May.
The awards ceremony will take place on 20 September at the Royal Lancaster Hotel in London.
