About the Awards
One of Third Sector's most important missions – and passions – is to recognise the achievements of charities and provide a platform for examples of good practice.
The Third Sector Awards provide an opportunity for voluntary organisations of all sizes, and the people who work for them, to celebrate their work and the real difference they make to society.
Whether it is supporting beneficiaries, raising awareness of crucial issues or driving best practice among their peers, the vital contributions of charities cannot be overstated. We want to use Third Sector's platform to thank the individuals and teams working their hardest to deliver at a time when they have never been more needed.
Entering the Third Sector Awards is your opportunity to shout about just how great your charity, organisation or team is. This is the chance to bring your work to life, tell its story and be awarded for it. The Third Sector Awards pride themselves on educating and inspiring the sector, as well as offering every entrant detailed feedback on their entry from our expert panel of judges.
The awards also offer a free entry scheme for charities with an annual income of less than £100,000.
Small and Micro Charities
Small and micro charities make up the majority of the third sector landscape, and most local and BAME-led charities fall within this group.
At Third Sector, we want to celebrate the vital work of these organisations and individuals, and we recognise that an awards entry fee can be a barrier to access.
Ahead of the 2023 Third Sector Awards we are offering a batch of 15 free entries to the Talent Awards to charities with an annual income of less than £100,000.
Eligible organisations can register their interest in entering, and the category they would like to submit an entry to. Following the registration deadline of Wednesday 15th March, entries will be randomly allocated to interested applicants.
Ahead of the judging days, entrants will be invited to a free awards workshop, where they will be given practical advice and guidance on submitting a winning entry from our Acting Editor, Andy Ricketts, and our Chair Judge.
