The Big Lottery Fund and ITV have announced a bigger People's Millions public voting competition for 2007. Ninety grants of £80,000 are up for grabs this year, including awards to the most popular runners-up in each ITV region.

These £80,000 awards will fund projects that aim to make a difference in their community from creating an urban nature reserve, a wildlife garden or play area to clearing up an over grown waterway or vandalised community building.

The opportunity to have a say on how Lottery money is awarded caught the public imagination last year and thousands of votes were cast in a frantic week of frayed nerves that culminated in champagne celebrations for 86 projects.

    This is a fantastic idea from the UK, let the public decide how lottery revenue is spent. If people have a direct say in how the revenue that in generated by lotteries is spent, they will be more lightly to play lotteries and raise more money for good causes. It's a win win all-round!
