‘Social Entrepreneur of the Year Awards’ – Nominations now open!
Community Channel has partnered with The Sunday Times to launch The Change Makers, a campaign to find the social entrepreneur of the year.
They’re calling on you to nominate inspirational social entrepreneurs. If you know someone running a project or organisation that is having a significant positive impact on the community, we want to hear from you.
It could be someone who runs an educational club that takes young people off the streets and gives them a constructive and positive hobby or someone helping to provide local healthy food for the community by running communal gardens. We want to celebrate inspiring individuals who are coming up with innovative and enterprising solutions to help tackle social issues.
The winner of the competition will be featured in an interview published in The Sunday Times newspaper, be awarded £500 from Media Trust to further their work through digital media and receive a raft of professional media support from The Sunday Times*. The winner will also be showcased in a special episode of UK360 on Community Channel, a programme dedicated to sharing the most inspiring local stories from across the UK.
All nominees must be available for interview with The Sunday Times and Community Channel journalists, and for filming the UK360 episode, during the week of Monday 2 April 2012.
The closing date for entries is Wednesday 28 March 2012 at 12pm. Enter now!
