The SLA Inspiration Award is given to the school library space that shows inspiration, innovation, creativity and resourcefulness in its library design and in use, either through creative use of specific products or promotions. What matters is not how big the school library space is, but what it has achieved with the available resources and the challenges it faces.
The next SLA Inspiration Award will be presented in 2017. Entries will open on Monday 11 April 2016 and close on Friday 10 February 2017.

The Inspiration Award now takes place biennially with prizes awarded in both primary and secondary sectors. The entry period has been extended giving schools more time to complete their application. Judges' visits to schools that make the longlist will take place from late spring to early in the summer term with the shortlist announced in late June/early July.
The award will continue to be sponsored by Gresswell and LFC, part of the Demco Europe family of companies, who will be increasing the prize money to £750 for the winners and £200 for the runners up in each category.
