Nominations are now open!

We’re delighted to be bringing back the Tidy Wales Awards in 2023 as part of our 50th anniversary celebrations.

Dating back to 1990, the Tidy Wales Awards honours environmental heroes – the individuals, groups schools, and businesses that go above and beyond to care for our beautiful country.

As well as our well-known awards, this year we’ve developed new categories to showcase all the incredible, innovative projects taking place across Wales.

Do you work tirelessly to keep your local area clean, green, and safe? Do you have a friend or family member who is dedicated to looking after nature? Maybe you teach at an Eco-School that has developed an exciting new project? Or perhaps you’re part of an organisation that is leading the way in sustainability? We want to hear from you!

This is the opportunity to celebrate and thank the people and businesses in Wales who are making a positive difference to our environment.

Nominations are open from 1 February to 6 March. The finalists for each category will be invited to join us for the prestigious daytime Tidy Wales Awards ceremony on Wednesday 19 April at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama in Cardiff.
