Golden Awards

CAMRA’s Golden Awards 

CAMRA wants to recognise 50 people, groups of people or businesses that have made a significant contribution to CAMRA’s aims, helping us get to where we are today.
This is aimed at our campaigning heroes, the pub/club all stars, beer saviours/custodians and stalwarts both in our midst, or those who are no longer with us. We want to celebrate our successes.
To help you make your decision, just think about the campaigning we have done for Pints, Pubs and People since 1971, and nominate from the following categories below.
