The 2022 Best Practice Awards Shortlist

On Monday 6th, Tuesday 7th and Wednesday 8th December 2021 our shortlisting panels met to consider the entries and put forward the best ones in each category for the final shortlist. The panels were made up of leaders from trade associations across the country, making these awards the only UK awards for trade associations, by trade associations.

This year we received a bumper crop of entries from across the spectrum of trade associations, large and small, so the sifting panels had their work cut out.

Congratulations to everyone who has made the shortlist – it’s a huge testament to the quality of your work over the past year!

The final judging panel will meet in the new year to decide the winners, with the results announced at the ceremony on Thursday 17th February 2022.
