Today the LGC Awards has grown to be by far the biggest celebration of excellence in local government

During today’s difficult times, it is more vital than ever to ensure your teams have their hard work recognised and rewarded to improve morale. Entering the LGC Awards offers councils an opportunity to learn from each other's best practice. By sharing your success through the LGC Awards you can equip other councils to deliver high quality services for their local population, despite austerity.

There are 21 categories to choose from, with 1 new category available to enter this year. Click here to view the complete list.


LGC editor Nick Golding said: “Times are tough in local government, making it even more vital that the sector shares its most innovative ideas and recognises the work of its pioneering staff through the LGC Awards. The LGC Awards are all about celebrating talent which often does not receive the recognition it deserves.”


To enter, all you need to do is tell us in up to 1,000 words why you should be a winner.

Register today and submit your entry by 4 October

Entry is quick, easy and FREE!
