British Ambassador Awards recognises significant Czech personalities

The British Embassy in Prague announces a call for nominations for the second Ambassador’s Awards where inspirational personalities will be awarded in two categories.

Ambassador's Awards

The British Ambassador to the Czech Republic will award individuals who contributed to common Czech-British values.

Anyone can nominate candidates from all fields in two categories: “Young Person of the Year” (under 30 years) and “Person of the Year” (30 years and above). In the submission form, please describe the exceptional and commendable activity undertaken by your candidate(s) and how they have made a positive impact.

An expert committee will pay special attention to individuals working with youth, minorities or disabled persons and those who have contributed to positive Czech-British cultural exchange or local communities. This year, we are also focusing on activities which have contributed to common Czech-British values, such as equality and the environment.
