Time is running out to submit your nominations for the 2017 National Lottery Awards. This year’s search to find the UK’s favourite Lottery-funded project will close on Friday 7th March.


Lottery players raise £30 million each week for projects across the UK and the Awards are a great way of celebrating the unsung heroes improving lives with National Lottery funding.

Now in their 14th year, the Awards recognise the incredible difference that Lottery-funded projects have made to people, places and communities all across the UK through the 500,000 grants awarded since 1994.

There are seven categories, reflecting the different types of projects to benefit from National Lottery funding: Art, Education, Environment, Health, Heritage, Sport and Charity/Voluntary.

You can nominate your favourite project or put yours forward. All entries must have received National Lottery funding, at any time since the Lottery started in 1994.
Winners receive a £3,000 prize for their project and star in a BBC One television show.

Deadline for entries is midnight on 7 April.
