Honours Scheme

The remit of the Honours Committee is to make recommendations for awards within the fencing family only, therefore largely within BF but occasionally within the FIE or other fencing-based organisations.  Responsibility for recommendations for Queen’s or State Honours remains with BF’s Nominations Committee.  

The Honours nomination system focuses entirely on the membership with all nominations coming direct from members.  The Honours Committee acts as selectors with the objective of recommending awards in a wide range of categories while ensuring that there is consistency of award levels and criteria.   Awards are made annually and announced at the AGM. 

To make a nomination, please complete the application form giving as much detail as possible for your reasons in making the recommendation.  When you have completed your nomination, please email the form to headoffice@britishfencing.com with ‘BF Honours’ as the subject heading. 

Please note that for the 2017 awards, your emailed form must arrive no later than 29 May 2017.

(Please also note, you must be at least 18 years of age to make a nomination).
