Once again, the annual search for the UK’s favourite National Lottery funded people and projects will recognise those individuals and organisations who have made an extraordinary impact in their community – especially during these unprecedent times. 

National Lottery players raise more than £30 million every week for good causes and we know this money is being used in amazing and inspiring ways. As part of The National Lottery Awards, we want to celebrate those whose selfless dedication and fantastic work makes such a difference in villages, towns and cities across the country. 

Encompassing all areas of National Lottery funding, you can nominate local legends and hometown heroes in the following categories: arts, culture and film, community/charity, heritage, environment and sport. In addition, there will be a young hero award for someone under the age of 25. 

Furthermore, groups or organisations are eligible to enter The National Lottery Project of the Year category, where shortlisted finalists will face a public vote later in the year.  

All award winners will receive an iconic National Lottery Awards trophy and £5,000 for their organisation. 

Nominations can be made by completing an entry form on our website www.lotterygoodcauses.org.uk/awards. All nominees must have been funded by The National Lottery or be associated with a National Lottery funded project. Entries must be received by midnight on 1st June 2022.  

Yours faithfully,
