IPB Pride of Place 2023


The IPB Pride of Place competition will be running for the 21st consecutive year in 2023, organised by Co-Operation Ireland. The purpose of these awards is to acknowledge the work being done every day by communities all over the island of Ireland. 

The competition is is open to all local community groups, by way of local authority nomination. Nominated groups will demonstrate their pride in their place by presenting to judges some exhibitions of community activities and culture, and a tour of the area highlighting the aspects of which they are particularly proud. It is also important that the community demonstrates real partnership with their local authorities and shows that all sectors of the community are included.
