Celebrating the best campaigns and campaigners
2022 Awards Winners and Runners-up
This year we celebrated the best campaigns and change-makers. Check out our fantastic category runners up and winners.
Long-term Achievement Award
To recognise the work and contribution of an exceptional individual who has campaigned over a long period of time.
‘Peter is the original thorn the side of the establishment. He does not campaign politely, he campaigns passionately. He has created space for others to live openly and proudly, and has made the previously unthinkable possible. Successful campaigning needs a whole host of ingredients – but Peter always brings the rocket fuel.’
Sue Tibballs, SMK Chief Executive
