The award is organised by Liberty and JUSTICE, and sponsored by the Law Society, Bar Council and Institute of Legal Executives.

Nominations are invited from the public, and the shortlist and winners are decided by an independent panel of judges. Thanks to all the individuals and organisations who have worked with CAMPACC.
In June 2002, CAMPACC presented a petition to the Prime Minister, Tony Blair, signed by 1217 citizens from various communities and organisations of the UK. The petition was an appeal against the anti-terrorism acts of 2000 and 2001. It argued that these are fundamentally anti-democratic pieces of legislation posing serious dangers to our basic civil liberties. Read more and the list of signatories
The Campaign Against Criminalising Communities (CAMPACC) was formed in March 2001 in response the banning of 21 organisations under powers of the Terrorism Act 2000. The Campaign brings together human rights activists, lawyers, journalists, and communities which find themselves targeted by so-called 'anti-terrorism' legislation. CAMPACC organises public meetings, petitions, Parliamentary lobbies, submissions to Parliamentary bodies, as well as protests at court hearings and prisons.
