2018 ART Awards

The ART Awards recognise people and groups who are leading best practice and innovation in the teaching and development of ringing and our Learning the Ropes achievers.

The teaching awards are open to everyone, not just ART Members or those using the Learning the Ropes Scheme. The ringing award is open to those who have completed one of the Learning the Ropes programmes (on tower or hand bells) or participated in the Learning the Ropes plus Scheme.

Applications need to be submitted by 31 December 2017.

Prizes

Prizes may be spent in a flexible manner, to be agreed with the winners, so that value is added to the group and activities undertaken by the winners. The award winners will be announced and prizes presented at the 2018 ART Conference. Prizes should be spent within two years of notification, unless agreed otherwise with ART. The Learning the Ropes achievers cash prizes may be spent in any way.

All those resident in the UK who have achieved LtR Level 5 by 31 December 2017 will be invited to our Learning The Ropes Masterclass in 2018. All relevant travel and accommodation expenses will be met for those who have not previously attended the Masterclass.
