Awards 2016
London Hilton Hotel, Park Lane

Celebrating the very best in local government

Since they were set up in 2004 to recognise and promote the best work of local government managers and staff The MJ Awards have expanded to become one of the premier ways of recognising and praising innovation in local government while the annual awards night is now a highlight of the networking calendar.

During the last decade hundreds of innovative council services have been recognised as winners, highly commended, finalists and commended. Across the UK foyers, shelves and office walls proudly bear the trophies of The MJ Awards. And the winning entries themselves have become recognised by their peers as leaders in service delivery.

We are delighted therefore to launch the thirteenth awards for 2016 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 2016 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!

Good luck!
