Celebrating the best campaigns and campaigners

With the help of our experienced judges we have shortlisted an incredible mix of campaigns. You can read their stories below and get inspired! With over 130 nominations, all shining a light on amazing individuals and groups, it wasn’t an easy task to decide. Winners will be announced at our virtual Awards ceremony on 30 September 2020 (4pm to 5.30pm).

Without the support of our sponsors, these Awards couldn’t happen. Thank you from all of us at SMK.
