Find out how to nominate here.
Who can nominate?
Macmillan staff, managers or peers in organisations that employ professionals in Macmillan posts or work in partnership with Macmillan.
Nominations are open from 2 February to 31 March 2015.
Who can be nominated
Anyone who has been a Macmillan professional for at least one year can be nominated as an individual or as part of a team, whatever their role or level. Nominations should demonstrate how they've gone beyond what is expected of them, showing the difference between exceptional service and what we expect from Macmillan professionals as standard practice.
Award categories and prizes
The award categories are:
Up to three awards will be given in each Excellence Award category. Each individual winner will receive £150 plus an award, and winning teams will be given £500 and a plaque.
We will select up to three Macmillan fellows from the individual award winners. Fellows will be able to access a grant of £10,000 and their expertise and leadership will influence wider Macmillan work.
Only one professional will be selected for the Lifetime Achievement Award, who will be presented with a trophy.
Award winners and representatives from the employing orgasisation will be invited to a high profile awards ceremony at the annual Macmillan Professionals Event on Thursday 5 November 2015. The awards will enable the winners to raise the profile of their work and celebrate it on a nationwide scale.

Lifetime Achievement Award
This is our highest and most prestigious award.
It was first introduced in 2014 and recognises individuals who have made an outstanding contribution to supporting Macmillan over a lifetime.
Nominations are made internally and the winner will be announced at the awards ceremony in November.
The pictured trophy was awarded to Charles Campion-Smith in 2014 for his development of the Macmillan GP community, primary care programmes, fundraising and passion for Macmillan.
Henry Garnett Awards
Macmillan recognises the exceptional contribution that inspirational professionals make beyond their core professional role. This could include work promoting and supporting Macmillan through the media, fundraising, policy development or educating across networks.
You can see the award criteria and previous winners here.
Nominations for Henry Garnett Awards are open from 2 February to 31 March 2015 and can be submitted in the same way as the Excellence Awards.
Nominations for Henry Garnett Awards are independent to those for Excellence Awards, meaning a Macmillan professional can be nominated for both a Henry Garnett Award and an Excellence Award if appropriate.
Winners of the Henry Garnett Award will be presented with their winners certificates locally.
