The LGC Awards is the premier event of the local government calendar.

This prestigious event exists to identify, showcase and celebrate the finest examples of innovation and quality delivered by councils on a daily basis. Due to the high number of entries year on year, winning an LGC Award has become the most sought-after accolade in local government.

The 22 categories recognise cutting edge best practice from every part of local government and are reviewed every year to reflect the ever-changing priorities and challenges facing councils today. The awards’ credibility is underpinned by an intensive and robust judging process which again is refreshed and redesigned annually.
