WTT Conservation Awards 2019
Posted on March 29, 2019
If you’re doing work for our rivers and their trout, we want to hear and tell about it. Apply now for the WTT Conservation Awards 2019 – click here for an information sheet and here for the application form.
We’re looking for practical improvement projects of all sizes (could be a big-scale river restoration project, a weir removal or small-scale but highly effective improvement of an angling club water) and we’re keen to recognise broader work for our rivers and their trout, for example how an angling club is changing for the better how it manages its fishing and its anglers.
The application form is simple and easy to complete; if we like what we see, we’ll arrange a judges’ interview to discuss your work with you in more detail, before announcing our winners at the Awards’ ceremony in London on 16 October 2019. During this evening, we’ll ask you to tell our audience about your work and give you the opportunity to display your project through a poster and/or fliers for guests to take away.
We’re also open for nominations to recognise one person’s superhuman effort for our rivers and their trout, through our Wild Trout Hero Award (for professionals such as riverkeepers or fishery scientists) or the Bernard Venables Award for those working in a voluntary capacity. If you know such a superhero, send your nomination to the WTT Director (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Entries and nominations to be received by WTT no later than Wednesday 31 July 2019. Further information here.
