THE 2018 CHURCHILL AWARDS

Your chance to get in­volved

The Daily Telegraph - Property - - Heritage -

Did you see an epic per­for­mance by one of Bri­tain’s finest ac­tors this year, but it wasn’t given the plau­dits it de­served? Now’s your chance to right that wrong.

The Tele­graph in­vites its read­ers to nom­i­nate the 65-and-older stars be­hind their favourite cin­e­matic and the­atri­cal per­for­mances from the last year.

The Churchill Awards, now in their sev­enth year, recog­nise the sig­nif­i­cant role that over-65s play in Bri­tish so­ci­ety. The cat­e­gories in­clude: Art; Busi­ness; Con­tri­bu­tion to Char­ity; Lit­er­a­ture; Mil­i­tary; Mu­sic; Pol­i­tics; Sci­ence and En­vi­ron­ment; Sport; Stage and Screen; and Tele­vi­sion and Ra­dio. Read­ers are in­vited to sub­mit nom­i­na­tions for the Stage and Screen cat­e­gory; last year’s win­ner was Sir David Ja­son (pic­tured).

“The Churchill Awards high­light ev­ery­thing the over-65s con­trib­ute to our so­ci­ety, and the huge amount they still have to of­fer,” says Spencer McCarthy, chair­man and chief op­er­at­ing of­fi­cer of Churchill Re­tire­ment Liv­ing. “The awards have gone from strength to strength, and I’m look­ing for­ward to see­ing The Daily

Tele­graph read­ers’ nom­i­na­tions for a star of stage and screen who has shown they’re still at the top of their game dur­ing 2018.”

The Stage and Screen award has recog­nised Sir Roger Moore, Dame Judi Dench and Dame He­len Mir­ren. Sub­mit a short para­graph giv­ing the rea­son for your nom­i­na­tion be­fore Oct 29. A panel of judges will de­ter­mine the win­ners. Send nom­i­na­tions to tele­graphread­er­saward@churchill­re­tire­ment.co.uk.
