Rosetrees Innovation Award 2021


Do you have a simple yet brilliant idea that can significantly help improve the lives of people in our society and make a real difference? If you do, the Rosetrees Trust would be delighted to hear about it and you could end up being the winner of a £10,000 Innovation Award.

In recent years, Rosetrees has given Innovation Awards to the National Theatre that have funded bright new ideas in set design, innovative approaches to script writing and new concepts in acting. In 2020, the Rosetrees Innovation Award was granted to The National Theatre to help with a new seating layout to ensure the main theatre could re-open. It allows the maximum number of theatre goers to be seats around a central stage so that a socially distanced, Covid safe performance can be delivered.

Entries can be about any subject that can make a difference, whether it’s the arts, education, homelessness or food poverty.

Applications are open, closing 30th September 2021.
