The Community Awards

The Community Awards celebrate the local charities, organisations, groups, individuals and businesses who work tirelessly to raise money and embark on community projects for the benefit of others, across the Bailiwick and further afield.

How to nominate

Nominations for the 2019 Awards are closed. Please keep an eye on this website for details of the 2020 Awards.

General Criteria for All Awards

  1. All nominees must be an individual or group of individuals, charity, voluntary organisation or company that are set up and operating within the Bailiwick of Guernsey. For the Charity of the Year Award and CSR Award, companies and charities must be registered with the Guernsey Registry.
  2. Church or parish groups are welcome to be nominated unless the category specifies that it is for a charity or company.
  3. A charity; voluntary, church or community group; individual; or company should have made a significant impact that can be measured and demonstrated.
  4. In all other cases the nominator will interpret the stated criteria for each award and explain to the Judges why they believe the nominee fits the description, and it will be for the Judges to decide who deserves the award. Providing detailed information makes selection easier for the Judging Panel.
  5. The Judges retain the right to ask for accounts and further information where it is deemed necessary, particularly at the shortlisting stage.
  6. The Judges retain the right to ask any formally constituted organisation for information on its governance arrangements, particularly with regard to child and/or adult safeguarding where relevant. Nominations will not be considered if relevant information is not submitted upon requested.
  7. Nominations for the previous year’s winners of an award will not be accepted for the same award two years running, but may enter in another award category. Past winners will be eligible for nomination again for the same award after one year has passed.
  8. Sponsors cannot be nominated for the award category that they are sponsoring, but can enter or be entered in other categories.
  9. Self-nominations are welcome.
