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 nomination system now in place focuses entirely on the membership, therefore with all nominations coming direct from members. The committee in effect 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 each year and announced at the AGM.
To make a nomination please click on this link to download the Excel application form. When you have completed your nomination please email the Excel form to email@example.com with ‘BF Honours’ as the subject. For the 2016 awards please note that your emailed form must arrive no later than 28 July 2016.
