Nominations are invited for the Tynwald Honour, the highest honour Tynwald can bestow.
The honour is conferred upon only a single individual in any one year, with submissions considered by the Tynwald Honours Committee.
First awarded in 2007 to Norman Sayle RI, the honour has since been bestowed upon Mr Harvey Briggs CP in 2008, Mr Ian Qualtrough JP in 2009, Dr Brian Stowell in 2010, Mr William Cain CBE in 2011, His Honour John Corrin CBE in 2012, Mrs Nadine Crowther MBE in 2013, Mr Hector Duff BEM in 2014 and Mr Geoff Karran MBE in 2015.
When submitting nominations the following criteria should be considered:
Normally a recipient would have to make an outstanding contribution in an area of life which is not necessarily his or her normal area of employment. It is recognised, however, that in exceptional circumstances it may be appropriate for someone to be considered for the award because of their contribution made through their normal means of employment; and
Nominations should be submitted in writing to the Committee Secretariat, Legislative Buildings, Finch Road, Douglas, IM1 3PW or by email to email@example.com. Closing date September 30th, 2015.
