Your details

We will use your personal information to process your nomination and to communicate with you about the event.


The Award Categories

The Award categories for 2020 are based on our new Guide Dogs Behaviours. Our behaviours capture the essence of what it is to be Guide Dogs PEOPLE, whether staff or volunteer. The behaviours are both new and yet rooted in our heritage; they reflect how we are, but also how we aspire to be. They are shared, and individual.

For more information and guidance on the behaviour categories and some prompts for what to write, please visit our Awards and Recognition page.
