The LeaDeRs Awards 2013 have been launched!

The ALDE Group in the EU’s Committee of the Regions has launched the third edition of the awards for key liberal democrat players at the level of subnational governments (regional and local). Open to liberal democrats from across Europe, previous winners include Paul Scriven, Leader of Sheffield City Council (2008-2011) for Achievement in Government at Local Level, awarded in 2010. This year’s awards ceremony will be held on 4 December in Brussels.

Both the national board of ALDE member parties as well as their local party branches can submit nominations of persons who are considered to be suitable candidates for such an award, accompanied by a brief reasoning and relevant supporting documents. Nominations must reach the ALDE-CoR secretariat by 30th of September 2013.

There will be 2 categories of awards:

  • Local Leader of the Year
  • Regional Leader of the Year

Each of these will have 4 different awards (i.e. total of 8 awards):

  1. Achievement in Government
  2. Achievement in Opposition
  3. Most effective party engagement with citizens
  4. Most effective EU ambassador

A jury composed of key European liberal democrats experienced in local, regional and European affairs will select the winners. Nomination forms can be downloaded by clicking here.
