Qualifying nominations will initially be judged by a panel of volunteer and practice team members and a shortlist will be drawn up of three nominations per category per region.

The winner in each region will be decided by online voting.

Regional winners will be put forward to the National heat which will be judged by a panel of staff, trustees, senior volunteers and practice team members as well as at least one person from outside of NCT.

When will the winners be announced?

The regional winners will be announced by Friday 14th July.

The National NCT Stars Awards will be presented at an event in Central London on 4 November 2017.
