Bursaries and Awards


Entry for the 2020 Marketing Excellence Awards is now closed!

The MCG runs the annual Marketing Excellence Awards to recognise and celebrate marketing successes, big and small, across all library sectors. 

Huge thanks to all who entered the 2020 competition. Winners will be announced in September 2020. The awards will be presented at the annual CILIP Marketing Excellence Conference in January 2021.

The MCG committee offers 2 bursaries:

1. CILIP Annual Conference: Every year, we provide an MCG member with an opportunity to attend CILIP's Annual conference. We pay the cost of one full delegate place at the conference as well as one night's accommodation.

As the CILIP 2020 Conference is taking place later in the year in Southport, applications for the Bursary place at the 2020 CILIP Conference will open later in the year.

Watch this space and follow us on twitter to stay updated. We particularly welcome applications from members who perhaps have never been to a CILIP conference before.

2. Research Bursary: The purpose of the Research Bursary is to develop marketing capability and experience amongst library staff in the UK.

One bursary will be awarded per year and the individual/team allocated the sum of £750 to achieve the goals set out in their application.

The fund is open to anyone working in a library or information service in the UK who is also an individual Marketing & Communications group member (membership to M&CG is free as part of your CILIP membership).

Entry for 2020 applications closed on the 31st March 2020. Thanks to all who entered.

Entry for the 2021 bursary will open in January 2021.
