This ever popular competition offers community initiated projects the chance to win a prize of £1,000 along with the prestige that the endorsement brings.
The award is intended for projects that are run by the people, for the people with the option for the whole community to become involved.
A panel of judges made up of representatives from The Duchy of Cornwall, The Royal Bath & West of England Society and previous Prince of Wales Award winners has the difficult task of compiling a shortlist before visiting each of the finalists.
The project which is deemed to play the strongest part in its local community, and that has clear long term viability, will be named winner with the award presented to them at The Royal Bath & West Show.
Entries for 2018 will open soon.
