Nominations for the prestigious Shaping Portsmouth Awards are now being received!

Each year at our Annual Conference, Shaping Portsmouth seeks to recognise some of our great City’s best and brightest through our Shaping Portsmouth Awards. The theme of the 2023 Conference is Transforming Portsmouth Together, and we’re looking to recognise those organisations across Business, Education, or Community, who have made an outstanding contribution to the City in this way. Whether it’s a progressive approach to learning, the use of innovative technology, or changing lives through volunteering, if you know a person or organisation that has made some excellent contribution to the City, transforming lives, places, or ways of doing things, we want to hear from you!

Stuart Brown, Shaping Portsmouth’s Head of Events, said “Every year it is really heartening to see the full scope of what our City’s businesses, schools, charities and community groups are doing for the betterment of the City. It’s always a tough decision when the team has to choose a winner, when there are so many worthy organisations that deserve our recognition. I’m really looking forward to reading this year’s nominations and seeing some of the great work that you all want us to consider.”

We are also taking nominations for our Armed Forces Covenant award, which seeks to recognise an outstanding contribution to the Armed Forces community, whether it’s been helping serving personnel, reservists, service leavers, or their families. If you know of an organisation based or operating in PO1-PO6 who goes above and beyond for our military community, we want to hear from you. You can nominate them using the same form as above. Please note: only organisations who have signed the Armed Forces Covenant, and achieved any level of Employer Recognition Scheme will be eligible. Please check with your nominee before submitting the nomination.

Nominations can be submitted using our online form, which can be found here

Nominations are open until 30th November.
