14 February 2017The Lord Mayor's Dragon Awards are back for our 30th year, rewarding excellence in community engagement.
To celebrate our 30th, we are introducing two brand new cateogries; the Innovation Award and the Regional Impact Award. These new Awards are recognition by both the Lord Mayor and the City of London Corporation that London businesses are finding new ways of achieving impact for the benefit of the community and are an asset, not only to the capital but to communities across the United Kingdom.
The Innovation Award is for companies developing new ways to benefit Greater London communities, by addressing an issue rarely supported by business, challenging the way businesses think about an issue or pioneering new ways to achieve impact.
The Regional Impact Award is for Greater London headquartered businesses that are strengthening regional communities through initiatives that both respond to local need and tie in to a strong overall community engagement strategy.
You can find a full list of our 2017 categories here, where you will notice that some of our old favourites have also evolved to better reflect the work undertaken by organisations in Greater London to enrich communities.
We are keen to hear from organisations of all sizes, using their influence and resources to achieve greater social impact.
We will open for applications on 20 February until 5pm, 24 April, so start gathering your impact statistics, inspiration quotes and endorsements. Now is the time to celebrate your impact!
