Entries are now open for your application for one or more of the following awards:

  • Best Family Event
  • Best Family Venue
  • Audience Impact Award
  • Best Age-Friendly Cultural Organisation

The Fantastic for Families Awards are judged by a panel of experts and leaders in family arts and culture, and are a great way to demonstrate your expertise to families.

“The success of our Fantastic for Families Award has attracted interest from partners and collaborators. The whole organisation celebrated the Award and it really gave our event, “Playtime”, the credit it deserved. The success allowed us to start thinking about the event as a regular part of our programme – we’re already looking forward to seeing what 2020 might have in store!” – The Whitworth, winners of a Best Family Event Award 2019 for Playtime
