Last year's winners
Last year's winners

IT’S that time of year again when the Observer celebrates your local heroes with the launch of our Community Awards.

Nominations are now open so we want you to tell us about the people, groups and schools that make a real difference to your life.

Content editor Kelly Brown said: “The Community Awards is one of the best events of the whole year because it champions the people and organisations who really deserve recognition.

“The great thing about the awards is you get to nominate and vote on the winners, so it really is 
down to you.

“So if you know an individual, sports club or school worthy of an award, get nominating!”

Nominations will be open until October 30, with voting taking place before the awards ceremony at the end of the year.

You can nominate by filling in the form in the paper or emailing:

You can once again also complete your nomination on our Community Awards Facebook page.
