There's still time to vote as this weekend the National Lottery Draw show on BBC1 will highlight the three Art category finalists.

The Baltic centre for contemporary art in Gateshead is one of the three finalists alongside Drumatik from Scotland and Achieving Something Special from Northern Ireland.

The Baltic is one of our National portfolio organisations and has received Lottery funding for a range of projects. You can find out more by watching this short video of their work.

The show, The National Lottery: Secret Fortune, is broadcast at 8.30pm on BBC1 on Saturday 6 October.

About the awards

The National Lottery Awards are an annual search to find the UK's favourite Lottery-funded projects. They aim to recognise the positive impact that the projects make to local communities.

Over 500 'Good Causes' were entered in this year's awards. 70 projects were shortlisted across seven categories which reflect the main areas of National Lottery funding. These have now been narrowed down to three for each category:

  • arts
  • education
  • environment
  • health
  • heritage
  • sport
  • voluntary

The winner in each category will be awarded £2,000 and will be announced during a special BBC1 television programme transmitted later this year.
