This award celebrates the work of community and voluntary and charitable organisations, clubs or groups that have brought about positive change.
Show us how your organisation has made an impact over the past 12 months.
How to Enter
Your entry must be accompanied by a short video (no longer than two minutes). The video should show the positive impact that your organisation has made locally, what you do and/or why you should win this award. You can host your video on Youtube or Vimeo.
All eligible impact stories will be showcased on our website and social media from 2 September 2019. Entries close 2 October.
What Happens Then?
Five nominees will then be shortlisted in each of sub-categories. From 29 October, the public will have a chance to vote for the shortlisted nominees. At the same time, a panel of judges will evaluate the shortlisted stories.
A winner will be chosen in each sub-category based on both the judges’ evaluation and the number of votes registered.
Winners will be announced at our Awards Ceremony in Dublin on 10 December.
Note: an organisation can only enter this category or the Social Enterprise of the Year category, not both.
There are three sub-categories in the Impact Awards:
Open to all independently governed and constituted community, voluntary or charitable organisations with no paid staff.
Open to organisations with paid staff and an annual turnover less than €1 million. Must be registered with the Charities Regulator.
Open to organisations with paid staff and an annual turnover over €1 million. Must be registered with the Charities Regulator.
