There are six categories for nominations:
- Adult (25 years and over).
- Young volunteer (under 25 years).
- ‘Green’ volunteer (individual of any age who volunteers with an environmental organisation or project).
- Groups (two or more individuals, whether as an informal group or a formally constituted organisation).
'Digital' volunteer (an individual who has helped tackle digital exclusion and helped others to experience the benefits of using ICT) this category is supported by Digital Communities Wales.
Nominees must live in Wales, or undertake their volunteering work in Wales. Nominated groups must be based in Wales.
The judging panel will select one winner and two runners up in each category who will receive an engraved trophy, and all eligible nominees will receive a certificate of commendation.
