The Brain Tumour Charity: Celebrating You Awards 2018

We're so excited to announce that on Thursday 19 April 2018, we will be hosting our inaugural awards ceremony - The Brain Tumour Charity: Celebrating You Awards 2018.

Over the past few years we have been on an incredible journey. This event is our moment to unite those that have significantly contributed to the delivery of our strategic goals.

To celebrate success and recognise the incredible achievements of our amazing supporters. To say thank you, because without that support, we simple could not do everything that we do.

Nominations have now closed.

Meet our judges

The Brain Tumour Charity: Celebrating You Awards 2018 judging panel has the tough task of shortlisting our inspirational nominees. Each member of our panel believes in the importance of our work and supports The Brain Tumour Charity's goals.


Who can be nominated?

These awards are being held to recognise the achievements of everyone at the forefront of the fight to defeat brain tumours.

This could be a friend, family member, colleague, healthcare professional, someone in your community or even yourself.

You are also able to nominate those who have inspired you but are sadly no longer with us.

Nominations have now closed.

What are the judges looking for?

In each category, the judges will be looking for positive and inspirational stories of achievement, commitment and dedication that aligns to the delivery of our strategy to double survival rates and halve the negative impact that brain tumours have on quality of life.

How do you select the winners?

All nominations will be considered by an internal panel who will agree a shortlist for each award category. Shortlisted nominations will then go forward to a final judging panel, each of whom have been affected by this terrible disease in some way or are passionate about helping us to defeat brain tumours sooner.

What are the next steps after nomination?

The panel will meet to decide the shortlist for the following categories in December: The Viv McBeth Fundraiser of the Year Award, The Volunteer of the Year Award, The Influencer of the Year Award and The Award for Special Recognition. The public will then be able to vote for their winner in the New Year.

At the same time, the panel will select the winner for the following awards: The Partnership of the Year Award, The Clinician of the Year Award, The Discovery Award, The Researcher Engagement Award and The Professional Excellence Award.

Winners and shortlisted individuals/teams for all awards will then be informed and need to be available for filming in February 2018 before attending the inspiring event itself in April 2018.

Who can attend?

For those awards where the winner is selected by the judging panel, there will be a minimum of two spaces allocated – including one for the winner. For those awards where the public is voting for the winner from a shortlist of three, there will also be two spaces allocated for each individual, including the person(s) shortlisted.
