Applications for the 2019 COSLA Excellence Awards have now been marked and we are ready to publish the 2019 long-list.

If your project is listed below then congratulations! You have made it to the penultimate round. Our team of internal judges will now screen the top 10 applications from each of the five categories and a further short-list (top three from each category) will be announced on August 14th.

If you make it to the next round you will be invited to present your project to the judging panel.  This final stage of the judging process is your opportunity to explain more about your project, demonstrate just how innovative and effective you have been, and show how others across Scotland and beyond can share in your successes.

We received hundreds of applications this year showcasing the very best of local government from across Scotland. COSLA would like to thank every applicant for the time and effort they took in entering this year’s programme.
