While people and groups living in some parts of Lancashire can apply directly to the Active Lancashire Awards, others will first need to make an application to localised awards run in their area by their local council or associated groups earlier in the year.

This is because many winners of the local awards are later automatically shortlisted for the same category at the Active Lancashire Awards.

Additionally, a small number of local authorities run awards but ask for applications to be made via the Active Lancashire Award website.

The following table will help you identify how to apply and what to expect.
