The Bowland Award
The Bowland Award, a hen harrier sculpture in bronze, is awarded annually for the best project, best practice or outstanding contribution to the wellbeing of National Landscapes.
The Award is one of our ways of acknowledging the tireless work of people who contribute to making the UK’s AONBs wonderful places to visit, live and work in. Each year we look for a person or a group of people for whom sharing, learning, inspiring is a way of life and who have made an outstanding contribution to the wellbeing of National Landscapes.
Nominations are received annually, these are shortlisted and the successful nominees are invited to deliver a short presentation at our Annual Conference. National Landscape teams then have the opportunity to vote as to which should be the winner. Once we have a winner, there is a presentation ceremony.
The award was paused due to the COVID pandemic in 2020 and 2021.
