Thank you for your 2022 River Prize Applications
In 2014 the Inaugural England River Prize was awarded at the River Restoration Centre's (RRC's) Annual Network Conference. After the success of 2014, the prize was expanded to include Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, under the new name of the UK River Prize.
Each year the winner receives the Nigel Holmes Trophy (right). Named after a friend and colleague who did so much for restoration, the award looks to inspire and celebrate innovation and best practice in river restoration and catchment management.
From 2020 we added a reach-scale award focusing on smaller scale projects.
