Nominations open on 15 September 2015 for the new ART Awards. These Awards are open to everyone – not just ART Members or those using ‘Learning the Ropes’ scheme (unless otherwise specified). The aim is intended to encourage and recognise the people and groups leading best practice and innovation in the teaching and development of ringing.
A significant prize will be presented in each category. These prizes will be of real value and may be spent in a flexible manner, to be agreed with the winners, so that real value is added to the group / activities undertaken by the winners.
The Award Winners will be announced in February 2016 and prizes will be presented at the ART Conference 2016 at Taylor’s Bell Foundry in Loughborough on 12th March.
Prizes will be awarded in the following categories:
Further award categories will be considered in future years and suggestions for this and offers of sponsorship are welcome.
You can enter as many categories as you would like, but a separate form / application should be made for each category.
Please feel free to nominate yourself or the group that you are part of – don’t be modest – we want to encourage good practice and new ideas!
If you would like to nominate a group or an individual but do not feel that you are the best person to make the application on their behalf, then please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and the ART Awards Leader will attempt to assist.
Applications are welcome from anywhere in the world.
The judging team will be led by Stephanie Pattenden, ART’s Independent Educational Standards Chair. The judges’ decision is final.
The closing date for the 2016 Awards is 31 December 2015. Please send your submission to email@example.com
