We are pleased to announce the Shortlist for the 2024 LGC Awards. Congratulations to all of our finalists and a big thank you to everyone that took the time and effort to enter.

Entrants demonstrated outstanding practice as well as cutting-edge innovations and the judges were very impressed with the extremely high standard.

The shortlisted organisations will now complete presentations and interviews to a specific judging panel made up of senior and influential figures within local government.

LGC editor Sarah Calkin said:

“We have been blown away by the response to this year’s LGC Awards, with more than 900 entries, a 24% increase on last year. This shows that despite the challenging circumstances facing councils up and down the country, there is plenty of excellent work taking pace by dedicated staff who are committed to their communities,

“Following a year in which too many councils have hit the headlines for the wrong reasons it is great to be able to celebrate the best of local government and highlight innovation across the whole range of council services.

“I need to say a massive thank you to our judging panels of senior council officers who have tirelessly sifted through all the entries in this record year on top of extremely demanding day jobs. But most of all, congratulations to everyone on the shortlist, making it this far is a huge achievement against so much competition.”

The winners of the LGC Awards will be announced at a prestigious ceremony on Wednesday 12 June at Grosvenor House, London - this is an evening not to be missed!
