Respect 'Loved by You' Awards 2013

 

Drum roll please...

Since communicating our ‘Respect ‘Loved by You’ Awards’ four weeks ago we have been amazed by the positive response.

The awards have generated lots of interest and 8,753 nominations were received and the awards have reached over 2.5 million people on Twitter with lots of support from community groups, celebrities and charities. The winners of the awards are those that received the most nominations.

The awards were an opportunity for people from all over the UK (anyone in the world could vote too) to vote for their favourites in 27 diverse categories. Categories ranged from ‘LGBT Charity of the Year’ to ‘Inclusive Event of the Year’. We worked hard to ensure all areas of life and interests were covered in the categories, and to ensure they had a real community feel.

We believe the awards offer a rare opportunity for the smallest community groups and events to be celebrated alongside the biggest. We don’t think there are enough opportunities to celebrate the inspiring work and positive impact of more isolated and community based groups, events and initiatives.  

We are delighted to announce the top 3 winners in each category, as voted for by you...
