Today is your last chance to nominate an inspiring young star in PR, as well as an established and inspirational champion of others, as nominations for the 2017 Suzy Spirit Awards closes at midnight tonight. Bowel Cancer UK is the official charity for the awards, which aims to save lives and improve the quality of life for all those suffering from the UK’s second biggest cancer killer.
The awards are unlike any other in the industry, where instead of looking to celebrate professional achievement, it goes further and honours candidates of exceptional character, integrity and leadership qualities.
Last year, the level of entries were so high – and the individual stories so inspiring – the judges made the decision to make a change to the format for 2017, with two categories available in which to nominate:
- Firstly, the judges are looking to honour a rising star who may only be at the beginning of their career, but already demonstrates Suzy’s qualities and characteristics in their everyday work.
- There is also the option to honour an established industry professional – someone who sets a shining example through mentoring and championing others.
The awards are free to enter. If you know someone exceptional then please champion them by filling in one of the short forms on the Suzy Spirit Awards website. If you know two worthy candidates, then you can nominate both.
Bowel Cancer UK is the official charity for the award which aims to save lives and improve the quality of life for all those affected by bowel cancer.
Here, the charity’s director of fundraising, Luke Squires, talks about why the work funded by the Suzy Spirit Awards to support its health promotion and training team is so important.
