Celebrating the very best in local government

Open for Entries!

Calling all local authority teams – The MJ Local Government Achievement Awards 2017 are now open for entries. And if you think your services and projects are at the cutting edge of innovation then this is the chance to prove it by entering one, or more, of the 14 categories in the 2017 awards.

Since they were launched in 2004 to recognise and promote the hard work and dedication of local authority staff and managers The MJ Awards have become one of the best ways of recognising and promoting innovation while the foyers of town and county halls up and down the country proudly display MJ Award trophies. The annual gala night when winners are announced - next year on June 15 - has become one of the highlights of the local government calendar. 

We are delighted to launch the fourteenth awards for 2017 and look forward to discovering even more examples of innovation and creativity by local authority teams. This is your chance to tell the world about your services and projects about which you are most proud.

Don’t keep your great ideas to yourselves! Why not tell the world about your projects and services by entering The MJ Awards 2017 which are now open for entries?

There are plenty of trailblazing projects - as we know having witnessed them in action. Although this is financially a challenging time this can inspire innovation and creativity among staff delivering services in difficult circumstances. So now is the time to tell your peers all about your great ideas!

Click here to see a full list of our categories. Enter online now - it is free and extremely easy. The closing date for entries is Friday 3rd February. We look forward to receiving them.

Good luck!
