Comic Relief’s Nosey Awards celebrate the schools, groups and individuals raising money for Red Nose Day, and are back for 2024.

This year there are five awards, including a new one established in honour of Comic Relief’s founding member Sir Lenny Henry.

The Nosey Awards 2024 categories are:


Getting Started with TikTok: An Introduction to Fundraising & Supporter Engagement

Entries for the Lenny close at 5pm on Thursday 22 February. Nominations for all other Nosey Awards close at noon on Sunday 31 March.

People can nominate themselves or someone else they believe deserves to be recognised, and they can also enter more than one category. The only condition is that they or the person/group being nominated, must have fundraised for Red Nose Day between 2021-2024.

Judges will look at how entrants represent their category, as well as how imaginative, creative, inclusive and enthusiastic the fundraising activity has been.

Samir Patel, CEO of Comic Relief said:

“Schools have been at the very heart of Red Nose Day since the very first campaign in 1988 and every year we are blown away not only by the tremendous amounts of money they raise but also by their creativity and the joy and laughter they bring to their fantastic fundraising efforts.


That is why this year, we’re excited to be honouring people’s fabulous fundraising achievements in The Nosey Awards, with two special awards for schools and young people. Whether you’ve baked a mouth-watering lemon drizzle cake, attempted a class sponsored silence, or abseiled down a mountain, we’d love to hear from you. Without your wonderful efforts Red Nose Day wouldn’t exist, so take some time to celebrate your achievements and enter The Nosey Awards 2024!”
