The 2020 Living Wage Champion Awards will showcase and celebrate the employees, employers and civil society leaders leading the way by promoting the Living Wage in their organisations, industries and beyond.
The Awards are judged by an independent panel of judges. Judges will shortlist overall winners, in ten categories. There will be a further three awards, that do not require nominations, which will be announced at the ceremony:
Who can apply for the awards?
With the exception of the "Campaigns of the Year" Award and the "Places Champion" Award, the awards are for Living Wage Employers, and Recognised Service Providers that are registered with the Living Wage Foundation. The awards are open to those that have entered and been shortlisted or won awards in the past, as well as those that have not applied before. If your organisation has won an award in the past, you cannot apply for this same category again, however you can apply for a different category.
Each employer can only apply in one award category; so please think carefully about which category your organisation should apply in. During the judging process, applications may be moved between categories if they are felt to be stronger elsewhere.
How to apply
We welcome applications from those that have gone ‘above and beyond’ in achieving and promoting the Living Wage. Judges will be looking for evidence that entrants have gone above and beyond to promote the Living Wage. All award nominations must include:
300 word account of your eligibility based on outlined criteria for each award.
A picture of the nominee or team with the Living Wage or Recognised Service Provider logo where possible, and contact details for yourself and the nominee.
Where possible, please include stats that demonstrate impact, for example, "ten organisations signed up to the Living Wage because of an event we held".
Applications should be submitted by Tuesday 10th March (9am).
