Voting open for the 2023 Archery GB Recognition Awards

Nominate an individual, club or organisation today to receive an award at our Presentation Evening in late autumn.

We want to recognise and celebrate the achievements and endless hard work that our passionate clubs and volunteers have put in, ensuring that as many people as possible can enjoy our sport.

The Recognition Awards align with Archery GB’s vision of Enriching Lives Through Archery, and the values we want the archery community to aspire to: valuing people for who they are and the contribution they make; choosing to work and learn together; striving for excellence; and always acting with integrity. 

If you feel that an individual, a club or other organisation deserves recognition, please take the time to consider nominating them - receiving recognition for the hard work they put in makes a huge difference. Anyone can nominate (including anyone who is not a member of Archery GB) using the form below:
