D&G LEADER Rural Awards 2019

The Dumfries & Galloway Local Action Group is delighted to launch the Dumfries & Galloway LEADER Rural Awards for 2019. A Black Tie Dinner and Awards Ceremony will take place at GG’s Yard on the evening Thursday 5th December 2019. The five awards for 2019 are; Rural Entrepreneurship Award, Natural Environment Award, Rural Resilience Award, Coastal and Fisheries Community Award and the Inclusive Communities Award. More information can be found on the entry form.

To celebrate the significant impact LEADER funding has had in Dumfries and Galloway since 1991, two additional award categories have been introduced; a Legacy Award and a Shining Light Award. They aim to recognise the outstanding contribution of some of the most successful and sustainable LEADER funded projects, organisations and individuals and to celebrate their long-term impact on the region.


How to enter

Dumfries & Galloway LEADER Rural Awards are open to all Dumfries & Galloway LEADER funded projects/organisations in the 2014 – 2020 Programme and European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (EMFF) projects.

Projects/organisations can enter into one or more of the five award categories, but if successful, projects/organisations will only be shortlisted in one award category.

The LEADER Team is happy to accept enquiries from anyone who is unsure about the most relevant award category/categories for their project.
