The MJ Awards started in 2004 to recognise and promote the best work of managers and staff from local government. The MJ Awards have expanded to become one of the premier ways of recognising and praising innovation in local government.
Local government has faced significant challenges in recent years. Staff across the country have responded to these challenges with ever more innovative and creative solutions. Challenging times have brought the best out in everyone.
But don’t keep your great ideas to yourselves! Why not tell the world about your great projects and services by entering The MJ Awards. It is the perfect way to recognise the achievements of your staff.
During the last decade hundreds of innovative council services have been recognised as winners, highly commended, finalists and commended. Across the UK hundreds of foyers, shelves and office walls proudly bear the trophies of The MJ Awards.
