Thank you to the wonderful council teams across the country for their amazing work helping their communities through the past year. The proof of their commitment can be found in the brilliant finalists listed in our awards supplement.

Our judges had a tough task choosing the finalists from such an array of high quality entries. They all show how council teams rose to the challenge of helping their communities and maintaining services through the difficult second year of the pandemic. Winning an MJ Award not only promotes a local authority's achievements, but it also provides staff the praise they deserve.

From the lists of finalists, our winners will be announced at our gala celebration on Friday June 24 at the Park Plaza Hotel, London - it will be an afternoon to remember, so make sure you are there!

Thanks go to our sponsors without whom the awards would not be possible, to our judges for their time, to the finalists they chose and to all those local authority teams who entered our awards – and have done such a magnificent job in the past year!
