Biffa Awards 2015 – Open for business
20 April 2015

Every year Biffa Award hosts an awards ceremony to celebrate, thank and reward those responsible for delivering the outstanding projects we fund.


This year the event will be a celebration of those people who are Building Communities and Transforming Lives within their local area with their extraordinary projects.


Any project that has completed between 1st April 2014 and 31st March 2015 is eligible to apply.  Entry forms and additional information have already been sent to those projects that are eligible to enter this year’s Awards.  Completed entry forms must arrive at our offices before 5pm on Friday 1st May 2015. 


Category Judges are looking for those organisations that have gone further than the original project remit and fully engaged with the local community and volunteers or had a positive impact on a local facility or environment for the benefit of the community, visitors or wildlife.


Shortlisted projects will be invited to attend the Awards ceremony on 1st October 2015 at Coventry Transport Museum – site of the Biffa Award Land Speed Records Exhibition (a recently launched Flagship Grant Scheme project).  Winners will receive a Biffa Award trophy and certificate from their category Judge on the day and will be featured in high profile Biffa Award publicity materials.   


Films of previous year’s winners can be found on our Extraordinary Stories page and an account of last year’s awards can be found HERE
