Nominations are open from 2 February and close at midnight on 31 March 2018.

2018 marks the seventh year of our Awards, and this website explains everything you need to know about them, from the different award categories to how to submit your nomination. It also shines a light on the inspiring achievements of last year’s winners, demonstrating the level of commitment required to win.

A Macmillan Excellence Award nomination is a tremendous achievement. Not only will nominees discover how much they’re appreciated, but winners will also receive recognition among their professional community, their peers and the public. What's more, the services and organisations they work for will be highlighted as examples of great practice too.

So, read on and find out how to let a Macmillan professional or team know what an enormous impact they are making with their unfaltering hard work and dedication.

Together, we can give our thanks to those whose work is nothing short of exceptional.
