This year, necessitated by the pandemic, we are taking the BCO Awards online. The growing strength of the BCO’s regional chapters and their desire to spotlight the very best in each area will feature in a Festival Week of Virtual BCO Awards which will take place from 19 October – 23 October.

19 Oct Midlands & Central England Awards

20 Oct  London Awards 2020

21 Oct Northern Awards 2020 

22 Oct South of England & South Wales Awards 

23 Oct Scottish Awards

The grand finale of this world-class competition will take place on Tuesday, 26 January 2021, 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.  


BCO Awards 2021

If you have a project that was completed between 1st January 2017 and 1st November 2020, then it is eligible to enter for our BCO Awards 2021.

The judges questions are reviewed by the judging panels each year, but don't tend to change year on year. To view the questions for 2020 you can simply download the Entry Guide 2020

Entries for the BCO Awards 2021 competition open on Wednesday 7 October 2020 and close on Friday 27 November 2020.

Test of Time Award 2021

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 will be invited in early 2021 to enter their winning project for a chance to win the BCO Test of Time Award at the National Awards Dinner in October 2021.
