Have you made a difference?

Has your publication made a difference to its local community?

The Big Difference Awards 2003 are coming up soon, and the deadline for nominations is on February 14.

The awards celebrate people and organisations that make a difference to their communities, making the north of England a better place in which to live and work.

One of the categories is for media organisations which have made a positive impact on their community. The category covers print and broadcast media, including new media companies – companies using their influence to raise awareness of local issues and proactively addressing them.

This can include through campaigns focused on individuals or aimed at communities, such as Hull-based Viking FM’s crime reduction campaign, which won last year’s award.

Winners will be announced at a celebration in Liverpool’s Crowne Plaza Hotel in March.

For further information, look at, fill in a nomination form from The Big Issue in the North magazine or call 0161 834 6300 to get a form.

The first Big Difference Awards were presented in March 2001 to organisations from across the north of England and raised £27,000 to help homeless people in the North of England move on in their lives.
