The British Fencing Honours Committee invites British Fencing members to nominate individuals for British Fencing awards. The process for so doing is now open and will close on the 27th May 2022.
The British Fencing Honours nomination system focuses entirely on the membership with all nominations coming directly from current members. The Honours Committee acts as selectors with the object of recommending awards in a wide range of categories whilst ensuring that there is consistency of award levels and criteria. Awards are conferred annually and presented at the AGM by the British Fencing President.
Nominators are to be aware that their nominee(s) are expected to be British Fencing members who have demonstrably upheld the values of British Fencing ie honesty, respect and excellence. Mention of this is to be made in the description below. If the nominee is involved with an active club, that club must be affiliated with British Fencing and be following minimum British Fencing standards with regards to coaching and membership. Nominations for those contributing to clubs should also relate to clubs that meet current BF Safeguarding and Welfare standards.
Fencing coaches and others paid for their involvement in our sport will only be considered for an award if they have enhanced the world of UK fencing beyond what might reasonably be expected as part of their paid employment, and which, in the case of those paid by a club, also benefits fencers who are not members of that club.
Further to our desire to recognise members who have shown particular prowess in rising to the challenge of keeping clubs and their members engaged across all age ranges during the pandemic, we would also welcome their nominations as we did in 2021.
To make a nomination, please complete the application form above giving as much detail as possible for your reasons in making the recommendation.
Please note that for the 2022 awards, your nominations must arrive no later than 27th May 2022.
(Please also note, you must be at least 18 years of age to make a nomination).
