So what are these Windrush Awards all about?

These awards are ACAP’s way of showcasing individuals that are, or have been doing great things in the community. It is our way of highlighting great people and good work in the African Caribbean community. Given what is going on in the world at this time, it is important to acknowledge t;his work because the local and national press don’t generally report on this work and many people (from outside the community) know very little about the impact that these descendants of the Windrush have in their local areas.

How did we decide who should win a Windrush Award?

The judges panel have been meeting for months during lockdown, to carefully consider the services, projects, people and businesses in the African Caribbean community.  The people selected are Windrush descendants and have each demonstrated the type of attitude and values that underpin the ‘Achievement’ (ACAP’s core principle) that we are looking for.

These awards are recognition for individuals doing extraordinary things in the community. It is our way of showcasing some of  the good things that are going on in the African Caribbean community because the local and national press don’t generally report on this work.

There are some great people out there, these are just the ones that we are acknowledging in 2020.  Now it is up to you to decide who should be the regional winner. Vote for your communitiy champion now.

What do you mean by the Peoples Choice Award?

The people’s Choice Award is a special award that has been designed for members of the public to nominate people that may not have come to the attention of the Judges.  We are talking about those unsung heroes and sheroes in the community who work under the radar and who are seldom recognised for their work. Use this award to nominate the people that YOU think have made a big impact in the African Caribbean community.

Can I nominate someone outside of Bradford, Huddersfield or Leeds?

Yes you can just as long as they live in West Yorkshire.  We are accepting nominations from all over the West Yorkshire region only as this is a celebration of the achievements and contributions made by people from this region.
