For European Social Fund projects only, nominations will be shortlisted in the following categories:

Category 2: Best individual achievement (aged 11-24 years)

The Welsh European Funding Office (WEFO) would like to hear about the success stories of individuals who have seized opportunities presented by the European Social Fund, going above and beyond to develop new skills, secure a job or find a new career path.

Category 3: Best application of cross cutting themes into an EU project

WEFO welcome applications that have successfully embedded the cross-cutting themes: sustainable development, equality and/ or gender mainstreaming and tackling poverty into their activities.
