There are three categories, staff, students and alumni. In each category the first prize is £500, second prize is £300 and third prize is £200. The cheques will be made payable to the organisation where the winners undertake their volunteering and come courtesy of the Awards official sponsor, BP.

The deadline for nominations is 11 May, with winners to be announced at an Awards Ceremony on 7†June. To qualify, the volunteering activity must address the needs of disadvantaged or deprived individuals or communities.
