The annual ADEPT President's Awards celebrate the achievements of our members and partners and showcase the wide range of exciting projects being undertaken by them. Entries for the Awards this year once again surpassed our expectations.
We received a total of 23 entries across the three Awards categories. The categories this year were:
1. Places that work for people – improvements that make a real difference to local residents' quality of life
2. Digital innovation/technology
3. Improving the environment, promoting health
We are grateful to everyone who took time to enter the awards and share with us their hard work. The commitment and innovation of ADEPT members is outstanding and the quality of the entries made the judging genuinely very difficult. As well as the Award winners, one or more 'Highly Commended' awards were made in each category. We have also created a portolio of all the entries to publicise these excellent examples of the innovative and creative projects being undertaken by ADEPT members.
