In April 2021 we will host the 11th annual Society Awards, with over £5,000 in prize money.
There are 9 award categories, all going to affiliated societies that have demonstrated excellence over the past year.
Awards are self-nominated, with one winner and one runner-up for each category. Three societies are nominated for each category, and are invited to the awards ceremony.
All societies are encouraged to enter, using the application form before 7th April. Applying takes five minutes, and could earn your society up to £800.

Award for Exceptional Individual Contribution
This award is given to approximately 10 students each year, highlighting their exceptional contributions to one or multiple societies. Winners are chosen at the discretion of the Societies Committee, based on the content of the nomination,
Entrants must be nominated by another member of their society. Note that contributions to subcommittees are not eligible for this award.
