OT_2014The OT Show Awards are open for entry until 28th August so ensure you take the opportunity to enter yourself or someone you think deserves recognition for an award!

The OT Show Awards are new for the 2015 show and are designed to celebrate and acknowledge successful individual teams in the OT profession. They are open to any OT professional irrespective of career level. The categories are:

  • Outstanding Senior OT Award (Sponsored by AKW Ltd)
  • Outstanding OT Award
  • Outstanding OTI/OTA/Support Worker Award
  • Outstanding Service/Innovation Award (team or individual) (Sponsored by The OT Magazine)

The deadline for entry submissions has been extended to 28th August 2015. The winner(s) of each award (not per person) will receive a prize of £250 towards CPD.

Applications are available via the website www.theotshow.com.

All entries received will be reviewed by a panel of some of the UK’s leading OT figure heads, including Robert Birmingham (Independent OT), Liz Waterman (Retired from J Webb but now Private Business Consultant), Anna Clampin (Course Director MSc Occupational Therapy Coventry University, previous Head of Education and Learning for COT) and Teresa Buchan (Head of Practice Development, Kent & Medway NHS). Finalists and winners will be announced at the show.

“There is so much great work happening out there and many OTs work without due recognition or reward. These new awards are a chance to celebrate the work of OTs.

“As well as celebrating the profession, we hope that those applying and the judging panel will represent the whole profession, as best as we can – we are after all, a diverse and inclusive profession.”
