This year, necessitated by the pandemic, we are taking the BCO Awards online.

Following the announcements of the Regional Winners at virtual ceremonies in October 2020, the BCO National Awards 2020 will be taking place on Thursday, 10 June 2021, 5pm when the regional winners are brought together for the fiercely fought national awards final. This will be a fabulous virtual event with all the razzmatazz you would expect for the grand finale. Attendance is free of charge, but you will need to reserve your place or virtual table.  


Entries for the 2022 BCO Awards open on Monday 28 June 2022. The closing deadline is Friday 26 November 2021 @5pm.

If you would like to start preparing your entry offline, please download the Entry Guide 2021 which will take you through the entry process step by step. All submissions received or prepared for the 2021 competition will be rolled forward to 2022, and there will be a further call for entries in due course to create, what we hope, will be a truly bumper crop of offices to assess in 2022.


Test of Time Award 2022

The Test of Time Award was introduced in 2011 and rewards previous BCO award winners that have gone on to fulfil their original aspirations and intentions. It recognises factors such as adaptability, savings in use, increased staff retention and / or reduced staff absenteeism. This award is by invitation of the national judging panel and is open to awards winners from the previous five years. All winners of a BCO Award in 2016 and 2017 will be invited in early 2022 to enter their winning project for a chance to win the BCO Test of Time Award at the National Awards Dinner in October 2022.
