How to Nominate

To put forward a volunteer, voluntary group, charity or business, just send us their name, a few lines on why you’d like them to be recognised and an image or one-minute film of them. You can use your phone to film them – just remember to keep it in a landscape position. 

Please ensure you have their permission to nominate them or let us know if you are nominating them in secret and we will share the good news with them! If you are someone who has directly benefited from their help, we would love to hear your story on camera or by text.

As part of the campaign, we want voluntary groups and charities to send us their videos, so we’ve asked professional filmmaker Tom Gudgeon, of Two Cubed Creative, for his hints and tips. Hopefully, this will enable you to gain useful marketing skills for the future. This is coming soon!

If you are submitting a photo, they need to be around 1MB in size. Portrait or landscape is fine. Please make sure there’s enough light and preferably take the photo in front of a neutral background or a background that means something to the person or organisation being photographed. 

Please ensure you have permission to send us the photo or film, which will be used by the CVS in its communications online, in paper, on social media and to the media. 

Please provide a caption for the photo, preferably with the names of those photographed. 

Once you have your photo or video ready to go, please send them to

Thank you for your nomination!
