Awards Categories

Team Modeshift Partnership of the Year

This award recognises and celebrates the efforts being made by individuals and groups to work in partnership with education providers, businesses and community groups, to promote and encourage active and sustainable travel.

Best Project Under £1,000

This award recognises budget busting projects and initiatives that have cost less than £1,000. Nominations will be accepted from organisations that have made a contribution of less than £1,000 to deliver a successful sustainable travel project or initiative.  Any ‘payment in kind’, sponsorship or other financial contribution could be used to ‘start up’ the project and does not need to be included in the £1,000. However, the contribution will need to be detailed in the nomination and must show how the project will be sustained without the additional support.
