Who will you nominate?

*Please note nominations have now closed for this year*

We are looking for outstanding individuals or teams who have innovated, impressed and shown dedication and commitment to supporting a thriving parliamentary democracy.

You must be a MP or Peer, a staff member working for a MP or Peer, in a parliamentary or constituency office, or employed by the House of Commons, House of Lords or the Parliamentary Digital Service to nominate a person or team for an award.

Nominations will open on 01 September 2020 and must be submitted no later than midnight on 30 October 2020.

The awards are free to enter. There are 8 categories in which you can put forward a nomination, and you can do so in as many categories as you like. For each nomination, you have a maximum of 500 words to outline why you think your nominee should win the award. Please note, 500 words is the maximum, answers may be shorter.

Some of the questions you may want to address in your nomination are:

  • What has the individual/team done?
  • Who has benefitted from their actions/work?
  • What is the lasting effect of their actions/work?


An individual or team need only be nominated once to be considered for an award and you may nominate more than one individual or team. The number of nominations received per nominee bears no weight in their selection.

Once nominations are closed, the entries will be reviewed by the Parliament’s People Awards committee and a shortlist will be created. The shortlist will then be assessed by our team of esteemed judges who will select the winners. The winners will be announced in January 2021.
