Intentional Projects Award

For great ideas and projects up to 1 year old.

This prize is for individuals, communities, aspiring businesses or newly formed groups and organisations to help establish a strong foundation from which to grow.

Knowledge sharing, training and strategy development are ways in which we would hope for this money to be used. We are also open to other suggestions if they will help make an idea a reality.

There are four prizes in this category, with each being awarded £10,000. We aim to award at least one prize to a small scale project.
