  • art & interpretation
  • community & volunteering
  • contribution to the built environment
  • education & learning
  • natural environment
  • recreation & tourism
  • restoration & historic environment

Last year’s winners included Porter Brook pocket park, Sheffield, in the contribution to the built environment category, with a commendation for Saltisford canal arm gardens and orchard. Read our report here.

Richard Parry, chief executive of the Canal & River Trust, said: ‘We are searching for those people and projects that have done the most to make a difference to the nation’s canals and rivers – transforming the places they pass through, and enriching the lives of all who use them.’

The closing date for entries this year is 17 March. Winners will be announced at a ceremony in Birmingham on 27 September.
