There’s great news on The MJ Awards – the deadline for entries has been extended to April 30 so there is loads of time to get them in.

And with local authorities taking a digital-first approach to service delivery during the pandemic, The MJ is also delighted to welcome executive search specialist, The McLean Partnership, as new sponsor of the topical Digital Transformation category. Judges will be looking for examples of significant improvements in the delivery of quality services as a consequence of innovation and digital transformation.

This year there is also a Community Heroes category which recognises outstanding work during the pandemic by individuals or teams.

Entries for all 17 categories should be up to 2000 words and submitted at awards.themj.co.uk which has full details.

Winners will be announced on September 17 2021 at a lunchtime event at London’s Hilton Hotel, Park Lane.
