We are pleased to announce that Seed Software are sponsoring the ‘Young Achiever of the Year 2018award at the APD Control Room Awards 2018, an event to recognise the unsung heroes of emergency and critical Fire, Ambulance, Police and Coast Guard control rooms.


Nominations can be made online through the Control Room Awards website - it only takes a 500-word nomination demonstrating what that person has done that deserves recognition in the control room.


Three shortlisted finalists for each of the nine award categories will be invited to attend an exclusive awards evening event on Thursday 8th March 2018 at the De Vere Orchard Hotel in Nottingham.


The award categories are:

  • The Lifetime Achievement Award
  • The Award for Services to the Public
  • Control Room Call Taker of the Year
  • Control Room Dispatcher of the Year
  • Young Achiever of the Year 2018
  • The Community Champion Award
  • Leader of the Year 2018
  • The Team of the Year Award
  • Special Recognition Award for Bravery and Courage


The closing date for nominations is Thursday 18th January 2018 and we’d love to see some familiar faces nominated as we have witnessed first-hand the amazing work that’s done by control room staff.


More information is available about the event, nominations and the award categories via the website
