RAIL’s annual National Rail Awards are known for their commitment to rewarding excellence across every aspect of the railway - from contributions made by those on the front line, to astounding achievements on the industry’s biggest projects.
This year’s awards will recognise the efforts of the industry and the railway family during one of the toughest periods in its history, covering submissions relating to the year ending March 31 2021.
This year’s ‘Railway Oscars’ ceremony is due to take place on September 16 at London’s prestigious Grosvenor House Hotel in Park Lane. Further details of the ceremony will be provided in line with Government guidelines with regard to the viability and safety of the event and the changing situation around COVID-19.
Across all the NRA categories, the judges are looking to reward initiatives that demonstrate innovation and measurable improvements in performance that could be rolled out across the railway. By doing so, the NRA is able to promote the industry’s long-term success and sustainability. Judging is rigorous and the NRA has a long-standing reputation for its forensic due diligence process.
Entries are shortlisted on the basis of written submissions that must be made by March 22. In most categories, this is then followed by an interview and presentation process in the spring (dates to be announced).
