Since entries closed, the first round of judging has taken place and the shortlist for 2019’s LGC Awards can be revealed.
Congratulations to all of our finalists! Thank you too to all those that entered that didn't make the shortlist. The quality of entries this year was again extremely high. Entrants demonstrated outstanding practice as well as cutting-edge innovations and the judges were very impressed with the high standard. More than 100 organisations have been shortlisted as finalists in the coveted awards, which recognise the best of local government innovation and service delivery.
The shortlisted organisations will now complete presentations and interviews to a specific judging panel made up of senior and influential figures within local government. The winners of the LGC Awards will then be announced at a prestigious ceremony on 13 March 2019 at Grosvenor House, London which will be attended by more than 1,100 people from local government and its partner organisations - this is an evening not to be missed!
