Welcome to the #ThisIsMe Awesome100 awards. Following the success of our inaugural Inclusive Networks Awards in 2015, we have widened the scope of our 2016 awards to be even more inclusive, and to celebrate more awesome people. This year we’re celebrating and rewarding the inspiring and often selfless work and support individuals offer others – whether this is volunteering, being a shining light and inspiration to others, fundraising, supporting diversity and inclusion in the workplace and in our communities and beyond. We’re calling the list our dedication list – perhaps the most inclusive celebration list in the UK. Help us celebrate and reward them! #TIMAwesome100
Presented by Inclusive Networks and in association with children’s charity Action for Children, the ‘ThisIsMe Awesome100’ list is open to everyone and we want to celebrate and recognise awesome people from all walks of life and from all over the UK.
We all know someone who works tirelessly to support local grass roots and community projects, champion diversity and inclusion, people who fundraise for charity and community groups at every opportunity, individuals who support workplace, social and professional network groups on top of their already demanding day jobs, people who inspire others despite their own struggles and people who are just generally awesome and are role models to others. How many times have you said “They deserve a medal” about someone who has done something great?
We think it’s time these people were celebrated, and that’s exactly what we’re going to do. But we need your help! Please spread the word of the #TIMAwesome100 and share amongst your friends, family, groups, networks and colleagues and encourage them to nominate those people who are truly awesome and deserve the recognition.
Following the nomination period our awesome judges will review all of the nominations and will present the #ThisIsMe Awesome100 list (in alphabetical order) in a very special issue of our brand new #ThisIsMe magazine – as well as publishing the list online. We will then celebrate our #TIMAwesome100 individuals at special #ThisIsMe celebration events in London, Cardiff and Edinburgh in March 2017.
What’s more, from the list we’ll be deciding nine individuals to receive some extra special recognition and a unique award designed by Edinburgh based artist Mark Vice.
The special categories are:
Inspiration of the Year
Volunteer of the Year
Fundraiser of the Year
Diversity & Inclusion Hero of the Year
Workplace Hero of the Year
Community Hero of the Year
Celebrity Hero of the Year
Inspiring Young Person of the Year
Key dates to remember:
Nominations are open now and close at 11.59pm on 31st January 2017.
The individuals featured in the Top100 will be contacted in February 2017 and invited to the celebration events taking place around the UK. A limited number of tickets will also be made available for these events.
The Top100 will be announced in April 2017 in a very special Awesome100 edition of our printed and online #ThisIsMe magazine.
Our Inclusive Networks Awards will return in 2017 – these take place every two years.
