Category #1 – Best Run Mosque
This Category looks to award Mosque leaders who have shown outstanding qualities in leadership and management of their Mosque and/or Islamic centre. Teams that have either been selected or elected by the congregation to innovate and deliver outstanding facilities that service all. How Mosques responded to the COVID-19 pandemic will be a key factor in the judges decision this year.
Judges will be looking for commendations relating to management competence, in organising events, programmes, services, handling complaints, working with different communities, sharing their expertise, approachability and integrity.
