Exemplar Awards close on 23rd September

Please help us to raise the profile of your gazetteer across local authorities.

The National Gazetteers Exemplar Awards process is an invaluable opportunity to demonstrate the significance of the work that you do. It gives us the opportunity to present your work through case studies, promotional booklets, press releases and best practice papers across the public sector and show to everyone the innovation and importance of the work that you do.

This is particularly essential at a time where addresses and streets have a high profile across the public sector due to the imminent launch of the national address gazetteer. As well as being integral to the business of your authority, LLPGs and LSGs also lie at the heart of the national gazetteer.

And there are now just 9 days left to get in your entry for this year's Exemplar Awards!
