Third Sector is now calling for entries for a very special, new award intended recognise the very best up-and-coming fundraising talent in the charity sector. They are open to junior, mid-level and senior fundraisers. Entrants may be of any age, but they must not have worked in the fundraising sector for more than three years. Fundraisers working for agencies may also enter. These awards are free to enter. Entries must be submitted by 28 March.
What the judges are looking for?
We are looking to identify the best newcomers to the fundraising profession. These are the individuals who have the potential to become the great fundraisers and leaders of the fundraising profession in the next decade.
This is not about how senior you are in your current role, or how great your responsibilities are – it is about what you want to achieve for your profession and your chosen causes, and why you want to achieve those things.
So in your 500-word entry, we want you to tell us:
In addition to the written entry, we’d like entrants to supply a short video (of no more than 1.30mins) telling us about themselves and what they have achieved. You may wish to include contributions from your manager, colleagues or even beneficiaries. Clips from the videos will be used on the night of the drinks reception.
The winners will be selected by our expert panel of judges. Finalists will be invited to a drinks reception in central London on the evening of 22 May.
