Yes, an applicant can submit more than one application for the same or different categories. However, the applications must cover completely different activities / achievements. If the same activities / achievements are the subject in more than one application, all the applications will be ineligible.
You should choose the category that seems the most suitable for your application. Do not submit the same application (covering the same activities / achievements) to more than one category as all the applications will be found ineligible (see above).
The Natura 2000 Award is a site-related award scheme. The Award aims to give recognition to activities that brought positive results for achieving the objectives of the Natura 2000 network. Even if your application covers activities / achievements that are not a classic site-related project, it might still be eligible if you can demonstrate a direct relevance to one or more Natura 2000 sites. For example:
All applications, regardless of the category they are submitted under, will be assessed using the same five criteria although the weight of each is different and tailored to the respective category:
The information to be provided under each criterion for each category is described in more detail in the Guidelines for Applicants .
