The biggest celebration of excellence in local government returns as a physical event on 4 November 2021

Last year’s awards took place virtually in October and were hosted by LGC editor Nick Golding and BBC Today programme presenter Justin Webb. More than 1,500 local authority professionals came together to celebrate the very best in local government.

Winners included East Riding of Yorkshire Council which won Team of the Year and Brent LBC which won Council of the Year.

This is your opportunity to celebrate your achievements and be recognised for your achievement and endeavour. The awards will reflect the fact that Covid-19 and the response to it have posed an unprecedented challenge to local government. Our judges will consider attributes such as performance, resilience, compassion and adaptability in the face of the pandemic alongside innovation and vision. However, entries which are primarily not about the Covid response will be treated equally to those that are.

There are 19 categories to enter including three new ones for Climate Response, Economic Support and Outstanding Individual Contribution.

Entry is quick, easy and FREE!

Register here in seconds and submit your entry by midnight on Friday, 25 June.

Please remember that you may enter more than one category.

"What does it mean to win Council of the Year?
It means everything – for everyone who has been working so diligently for the last 7, 8, 9 months while we’ve been in lockdown. Everything they have done has been about delivering for every one of the 335,000 residents who live and work in Brent and that’s what we care about…."
Leader, London Borough of Brent
