March 2021 | Expert panels in each subject area will shortlist submissions. Finalists and unsuccessful entrants will be notified

The Flood & Coast Excellence Awards are open to any project, scheme or initiative that has taken action on climate change linked to flood and coastal risk management or has contributed to managing and building local resilience to flooding. This includes projects, schemes and initiatives developed or supported by consultants, contractors and risk management authorities, as well as community-level initiatives. To be eligible, the project, scheme or initiative must have been completed or implemented between 1 January 2020 and 31 December 2020.


April 2021 | Finalist videos and photos due. Judging panel will convene to assess evidence and vote on winners

All nominations are reviewed by a group of first-round judges, made up of subject-matter experts from across the Environment Agency, to identify and shortlist the top submissions in each category. The three highest-scoring entries in each category move on as finalists and are asked to produce additional photos and a 2-minute video that brings the nomination to life. These materials, along with the evidence provided with the application, are assessed by a final judging panel, which is made up of esteemed representatives from across government, the private sector and academia to ensure a fair and balanced judging process.

The 2021 finalist entries will be featured and winners announced in a pre-recorded awards ceremony video, which will premiere on 30 June 2021.
