Our finalists come from tens of thousands of public nominations – they’re whittled down to a shortlist by our judging panel here at JustGiving, before we go back to the general public to help us decide who our incredible winners should be.  

 

The 10th annual JustGiving Awards in 2019 received a record-breaking 50,000 public nominations and our 24 finalists went on to receive a further 70,000 votes to decide the winners!

 

We were honoured to have the opportunity to share each of the finalists’ stories, and we finished the evening feeling inspired (and just a little bit emotional). We can’t wait to see what the 2022 Awards have in store!

FAQs

What are the Awards for? 
 
JustGiving's annual awards recognise outstanding contributions to fundraising by individuals and groups who have used JustGiving.
 
It's an opportunity to celebrate their achievements at an all-singing, all-dancing Awards ceremony. 

 

 

 Who can be nominated for an Award? 
 
You can nominate someone if they have fundraised between 01/01/2021 and 10/05/2022. It does not cost anything to nominate, and you can nominate as many people (including yourself) as you wish. But remember, to only nominate someone who you know will be happy to be nominated and won't object to you providing their information to us. 

 

When is the Awards Ceremony? 
 
Awards will be given during a celebration in London, on 10th October 2022. All shortlisted nominees will be invited to attend the Awards Ceremony with their friends and family. Winners will receive their award at the ceremony or, if a winner is not able to attend, we will send their award (trophy) to them. 

 

 

What do I need to include in my nomination? 
 
All nominations must be received by midnight on Sunday 19th June 2022 and include your name and email address. You also need to tell us the nominee's name and the URL of their JustGiving page so that we can identify them, and to explain (in up to 500 characters) why they should win the award you're nominating them for.

 

How do you decide who to shortlist? 
 
All nominations received are screened by a team of our staff. The shortlisting process is at our complete discretion. In general, we will be looking for outstanding examples of fundraising that have clear objectives, creative and effective implementation and tangible, demonstrable results. We will also consider the structure, presentation, and clarity of each nomination, and we will shortlist three nominations in each category to be put forward to the public vote, with the exception of our Special Recognition Award, which will only have one.

 

How does the voting process work? 
 
You will have the opportunity to make one vote in each category. Voting closes at midnight on 11th September 2022.
 
The winner of each award will be the person, team, charity or event organiser with the highest number of valid votes by the closing date.
