Initiated in 2003 at the request of the President of the ESU (1957-2011), HRH The Duke of Edinburgh, the ESU President's Award celebrates the use of technology in the teaching and learning of English.
The ESU is delighted to announce the winners of this year's ESU President's Award, who will receive their prizes at a special awards ceremony at the House of Lords on 12 February. Lord Alan Watson will host the ceremony, followed by the inaugural English Language Council Lecture by David Crystral OBE, at Dartmouth House.

The annual ESU President’s Award recognises and encourages the widespread and successful use of technology to enhance English teaching and learning worldwide. It is presented for innovation and good design in the use of technology for the teaching, learning and advancement of English as a first, second or foreign language.
Past entries have included websites, teaching resources and games. The target audiences of the entries ranged from beginner EFL students to teachers and those studying linguistics. Entries included material suitable for independent study, for classroom use and also for recreational use.
We will next be accepting submissions in the spring.
The prizes are given at a special award ceremony, and the results are widely reported in the press, professional newspapers and journals and through the ESU.
Winning entries may use the award logo on the publication to indicate their accolade.
- The judging panel assesses the entries using the criteria of design, usability, language and teaching content, potential and innovation.
- The entry should stand alone and should not rely upon additional resources or purchases.
- The award is open to any organisation or individual across the spectrum of interested parties, not just from the English Language teaching world.
- Entrants are responsible for all costs incurred in submitting entries.
- Entries for the award are by application form and on receipt of the £25 entry fee.
