IPB Pride of Place is a unique opportunity for community groups to be officially recognised on an all-island basis for the valuable work undertaken in their local areas. Entry is by way of county, city, borough or district council nomination only.

The process for nomination may vary from council to council. Some local authorities have their own ‘mini’ Pride of Place competitions, that act as preparatory step to the all-island competition, others will place advertisements for Expressions of Interest in their local media or entries may be nominated based on a councils knowledge of the communities and groups with whom they are involved.

If you wish to enter the 2018 IPB Pride Of Place Awards, please contact your Local Authority Pride of Place Liaison Officer. Your Liaison Officer will be happy to help with any queries or concerns regarding all aspects of the competition from how to be nominated, to confirming your judging day itinerary through to the Gala Dinner and Awards Ceremony. If you do not know your local council Liaison Officer, please contact your Co-operation Ireland representative.
