The newly formed London Chapter of the Awesome Foundation is kicking off proceedings today with a call for entries from London’s most creative, enterprising, fired up (and raring to go) minds.

An awesome foundation chapter is a group of 10 micro-trustees in a local area.  All 10 of us put £100 into a brown paper bag every month.  Then we hand it over to the most awesome idea submitted.

Got an awesome idea that needs £1,000 to become a reality? Hurrah! You’re in the right place. Submit your application here and we’ll invite the top applicants to present at our first event in June, where we will pick a worthy winner.

No idea is too small, and it can be just about anything just as long as it follows the following 2 rules:

1. It’s awesome
2. The money has a meaningful impact on its realisation

Important dates:

May 4th Call for entries commences
May 31st Deadline for May submissions
June 9th Awesome event: presentations and award-giving (venue TBC)

Let the awesomeness commence!
