the Trustees may decide that the Award be given
to two or more individuals or organisations that
have collaborated. Whilst the selection of those
to be nominated for and to receive the Award
rests with the Trustees at their absolute
discretion, the Trustees still welcome suggested
nominations from outside parties.
These nominations should be submitted in writing

'Nomination Form' which can be downloaded
from the Award Nomination Form page.
The Form must be received by the 30th
September of the year in which it is submitted.
