PinkNews has opened nominations in the first four categories for the upcoming PinkNews Awards for 2018.

Find below nomination forms in the Business Equality. Public Sector, Third Sector and Corporate Role Model awards, which will be given at the PinkNews Awards on October 17.

The PinkNews Awards celebrates the contributions of politicians, businesses and community groups towards what has been another historic year for LGBT+ equality around the world.

The Corporate Role Model Award is a new award for 2018 that seeks to highlight the individuals working to improve LGBT+ equality in their workplace.

This can include work in internal LGBT+ networks, as well as work with LGBT+ organisations and initiatives outside the workplace that are making a difference in their industry or community. Individuals may nominate themselves, or be nominated by others.

The Business Equality Award is open to all businesses, small or large. The Public Sector Equality Award is also open to all public sector bodies.

The Third Sector Award celebrates the contribution of third sector organisations towards achieving equality, and was launched in 2017.
