Playwork awards – nominate now!

16 Jan
Meynell Walter, organiser of the annual Playwork Conference in Eastbourne, invites the playwork community to once again celebrate its own

It is award season – and not only in the world of movies. Here in the world of Playwork we are getting ready for our 5th Awards Ceremony. Celebrating all that is good in the world of Playwork.

So we need your help:

  1. If you know of anyone worthy of an Award please nominate them
  2. If you have an email list, or a magazine, a blog or any other communication network please circulate the awards information that can be found here, so we can have a truly UK wide set of nominations and involvement in these awards.

If you would like the information in any other format please let me know and I will see what we can do.

Not too late book!

The Awards ceremony is on Tuesday 4th March 2014 at the National Playwork Conference in Eastbourne. The Conference currently has 220 participants but we would like to make it to 300. If you haven’t booked yet, NOW is the time to do so. Quote the ref NOWISTHETIME to get an individual £300 discount from the full Conference package price if you book before the end of January.
