Homeless media project award

Homeless Link is pleased to announce that this year’s Michael Whippman
Award is now open for entries!
The Michael Whippman award was set-up to find the best examples of
service user involvement and, this year, we’re asking for innovative
entries which have been created using some form of multi-media.
Whether it be a radio show, digital photography project, community
blog or group video – we want to hear about it!

You don't have to be a homelessness organisation to enter the Michael
Whippman Awards but entries must have been created by or with homeless
people. For instance, a community radio station could link up with a
local hostel to produce a show about homelessness or even just a music
show which is presented by homeless people!

The most important, however, is that the digital project has had a
positive impact on the lives of the homeless people involved.

The winning entry will be awarded £500 and be widely promoted across
the sector, including being featured in Connect, the quarterly
magazine for the homelessness sector, on Homeless Link's website, and
in a press release.

The 2nd place entry will be awarded £300 and third place will receive £200

The top 6 shortlisted entrants will also be eligible for two free
one-day delegate places at Homeless Link’s Annual Conference in July
(at least one service user must take one of the free places).

The deadlines for entries is: 29th May
