The awards are give every year for the best Prison projects for the environment and animal welfare and all prisons are eligible to submit entries which are then visited and inspected by experts and  the winners are chosen.It is a great way to work with the natural world in the prison environments and for prisoners to learn about and make a great contribution to the natural environment around them and also to also gain skills ahead of their release.

Kirkham Prison which is the largest open prison in the country was a worthy overall winner.
