This week the shortlist for this year's National Lottery Awards was announced with Seven Stories, The National Centre for Children's Books and Porthmeor Studios and Cellars both in the running for a prize.
The National Lottery awards reward and recognise the inspirational work of Lottery funded projects, including those which receive funding through Grants for the arts and our Strategic funds. It is now up to you to decide which of the nominated projects deserves to be presented an award at the ceremony in September, broadcast on BBC One.
You can vote for Seven Stories, The National Centre for Children's Books in the Best Education Project Category. The Newcastle-based centre cares for the only collection in the world that tells the story of modern British children's literature, and provides a year-round programme of exhibitions and events and activities that bring to life the world of story and children's books.
You can also vote for Porthmeor Studios and Cellars in St Ives for the Best Heritage project award. National Lottery funding has helped saved the organisation's Grade II listed home which has provided workspaces for artists, and fishermen, for more than 130 years.
