Each year, SMK celebrates the best campaigns and campaignersOur interest is in finding those who have made change happen – most effectively, creatively and courageously. 

That change might be in law or policy; it might be in attitudes, social norms or behaviour; it could be in how services are providedor in the protection of a service or asset. A campaign could be aimed at righting a wrong, or holding a body to account. 

What all the campaigns have in common is the determination to secure a specific change that will make things better – whether for an individual, a local neighbourhood or for every single one of us. 

This year we are especially lucky to welcome on board an overall sponsor for the Awards – Bates Wellsthe leading legal advisers to civil society, helping campaigning organisations go further.
