These prestigious awards are a long-standing way to recognise the important work done in the previous year that has contributed to managing flood and coastal risk, building local flood resilience and taking action on climate change.
To enter your nomination please email your completed entry form and supporting documents before 23:55 GMT on Sunday, 07 Mar 2021.
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.
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.
