If you have created an innovative English language teaching or learning product or service, why not put in an application for the prestigious ELTons awards? The deadline for applications is 3 November 2017.
The British Council is calling for worldwide applications for its 2018 ELTons Awards scheme which recognises innovation in English language teaching. The annual awards, now in their sixteenth year, are the international awards to recognise innovation in English language teaching (ELT) globally and are recognised as the most prestigious awards in the sector.
In 2017, the awards were streamed online on the British Council’s EnglishAgenda site and for the first time were broadcast live on Facebook attracting an audience of 60,000 people. This year, ELT professionals from around the world can apply in five categories:
Any ELT professional can apply for consideration for one of the categories including authors, teachers, trainers and publishers. Application packs can be downloaded from the ELTons web pages on EnglishAgenda. Applications will go through a rigorous judging process in three stages. The deadline for submissions is 3 November 2017 and a shortlist will be drawn up by March 2018. The judges, chosen for their expertise in the English language learning sector, will work at a distance, with all communication by email through a moderator and, like the rest of the audience, will not know the outcome until the envelope is opened at the ELTons Awards ceremony in London in June 2018.
A survey, sent out to ELTons winners and finalists from the past ten years, shows that 88% felt the ELTons awards enhanced the reputation of their work. ELTons winners and finalists reported increased visibility of their work, products, publications and brands; had their work featured on external websites as an example of excellence; found opportunities to present at international conferences and to give training sessions or to publish their work; received recognition from colleagues, business contacts and key stakeholders, internally and externally, locally and internationally. 54% of past finalists and winners used the ELTons to create tangible business benefits and over half used the ELTons to expand their professional networks.
Anna Searle, Director English Language at the British Council, said: 'The ELTons Awards for Innovation in English language teaching is an annual opportunity to celebrate the most innovative products, publications, apps and projects which support English language learners and teachers around the world in achieving their teaching and learning goals. It is also an opportunity that we take every year to recognise and celebrate the companies, the teams and the individuals, whose work is shaping the future of English language teaching.'
The ceremony will also see the announcement of the British Council Lifetime Achievement Award, for an ELT professional who has made a substantial contribution to the sector throughout their career. Last year’s winner was Professor Ronald Carter MBE (University of Nottingham, MBE for services to education). Professor Carter has been a major positive influence in English Language Teaching, with a service spanning several decades. He has written and edited over forty books and over one hundred articles, including the very influential Cambridge Grammar of English (CUP, 2006), co-written with Michael McCarthy, which won the 2007 British Council English Language Innovation Award. Ron has been a pioneer in the application of corpora (especially spoken ones) to the development of pedagogical materials and teacher resources.

19/10/2017 at 10:14 Updated 19/10/2017 at 11:43Just ten months have passed since James Ellington was nearly killed in a motorbike accident yet the British sprinter has set his sights on a return to the track in 2018.
Ellington suffered a fractured pelvis, tibia and fibula in Tenerife in January when the bike he and training partner Nigel Levine were on was struck head on by a car travelling on the wrong side of the road.
Since then, the 32-year-old has undergone three surgeries, but after having a carbon-fibre rod inserted into his leg - the first professional athlete to undergo the procedure - his rehab is well underway.Eurosport Player One Year Pass for just £29.99
And while Ellington is yet to put enough pressure on his leg to enable him to run, he is confident it's only a matter of time until he’s putting his spikes on.
"It's physically and mentally tough, because I'm used to being so active," Ellington told BBC Sport.
"But I'm definitely going in the right direction. I'm not going to be satisfied until I know I'm a competing athlete again.
"Rehab is going as well as it could be, but I've had little stages where I've plateaued.
"I'm out of the pool now. I've speeded things up and I'm trying to put a bit more force through my damaged leg.
"My doctors are treating it like a general rehab for someone in an accident like mine and focusing on getting me to function properly, but their mindset is also slowly switching over to the performance side of things."
Ellington was forced to watch from the stands as his 4x100m relay team-mates won gold at the World Championships in London this summer, 12 months after being part of the team that finished fifth in the Olympic final.
Mixed emotions have since followed, but Ellington is optimistic success is headed his way in the future.
"One minute I'm celebrating, the next I'm thinking 'that could have been me'," he said.
"It was bittersweet because it's something I've been working for my whole life.
"I want to be back on the track next year, training and maybe competing. Knowing my potential is the only thing getting me through.
"I definitely won't be going on a motorbike again."
