An awesome £1000!

This month only, we're doubling the gift :-)

We're going to make Awesome Liverpool's 2nd year its most awesome yet. And we're starting with two very special gift nights: a £1000 giveaway on 1st September, and a food-themed award night on 6th October.

What are you waiting for? Apply now for the £1000 gift!

Plus, if you're thinking of applying, the Awesome Trustees will be holding an informal meetup in Leaf on Bold St, to give feedback and advice in your ideas and 
boost your chance of winning! It's at 6pm-8pm on Monday 4th August.

But what is Awesome Liverpool?

For those who are new to Awesome Liverpool – we're part of a global network of volunteers who provide no-strings-attached grants for ideas that bring a flash of awesomeness to the Liverpool area. We've had 15 awesome winners so far, which you can read about on our website.

In addition to the £500 grant (or £1000 this month!) we also assign each winner a mentor who'll help guide them, providing useful contacts, business knowledge, and PR to develop their idea into a successful reality. You can read more about our trustees on our website.

Plus, for the next few gift nights, every finalist gets a copy of David Parrish's excellent T-shits and Suits: A Guide to the Business of Creativity. Thanks David!

If you've got an idea, and want to maximise your chances of winning, then come meet us and we will provide some advice for your application. Some of our trustees will be available to meet potential applicants at 6pm Monday 4th August in Leaf on Bold Street. 

£1000 Super Award Night 

6:30pm, Monday 1st September

That's right. We're taking a break for a month (no August award night!) and when we come back, the gift's a double award: £1000 for acts of super awesomeness! This award night is open to everyone, so get your applications in by midnight on 20th August.

£500 Food Theme Award Night

6:30pm, Monday 6th October

Usually our applications are open to all sorts of ideas. But this October we're having a food-related extravaganza. We've already funded a community kitchen and a synaesthetic feast, so we know you've got it in you. Get your applications in by midnight on 20th September.

Recent winners:

Wooden It Be Nice

After months training with a master carpenter in Finland, Luke McCarten has come back home, to start a Yurt-making business in Liverpool.

The £500 is going to help him buy a bandsaw, pillar drill, and belt sander so he can build and sell his first Yurt!

The Magpie Project

Local artist Debrea Lewis is setting dozens of shiny pieces of costume jewelry into the cracks and crevices of Liverpool's Baltic Quarter.

Our £500 paid for the special resin Debrea needed to set her magical trail of objects into the pavement, and make sure it stays there for years to come!

Penny Lane
Millenium Green

Penny Lane Millenium Green Trust needed our £500 to redevelop their local park, planting a circular bed of poppies to commemorate WWI, and a 2000-strong bluebell wood for local families to enjoy.

Have our recent winners given you an awesome idea?
