December 2020 update:

Every year, our Region has celebrated the very best of our people and projects in the North East & Cumbria, with our winners being announced and presented with their awards at our Annual Dinner. However, as you can imagine, this year has been very different.

With the current situation in mind, we are launching the North East & Cumbria Virtual Awards 2020. A slimmed down version of our annual awards, our three categories focus on the people and projects that have made a real difference to overcome the challenges of the past year:

- Apprentice Award
- Young Professional Award
- Project of the Year 2020

Whether it’s an outstanding contribution made from an apprentice or young professional, or a project that helps steer us through Covid-19, we want to hear from you.

Expressions of interest are open now until Friday 8th January 2021 – simply email us at northeastandcumbria@ciht.org.uk, stating which category you’d like to enter for. Full entries can then be submitted until mid-January.

The winners of each award will be announced at a special online ceremony, the details of which will be announced early in the new year. Best of luck!
