Campaigning is at the heart of Scotland’s voluntary sector – transforming attitudes, changing laws, and raising awareness of important issues that reflect the values of the sector. This award celebrates campaigns that mobilised people and secured a positive change.

If your campaign finished with a bang this year or achieved a significant milestone, this award is for you!  

Please note that fundraising campaigns are not eligible for this award. 

Judging criteria

Our judges want to understand more about how you identified the need for the campaign, what you did and how you have demonstrated success. In your answers and supporting evidence you should try to include:

  • A clear outline of why the campaign was needed, and who was involved
  • The story of what made this year special
  • Facts and figures that highlight how you’ve achieved your success.
  • Real-life examples of the impact of the campaign, which may include case studies and/or testimonials
