Let’s make this an awards to remember, especially as so many of you will have done remarkable work during the pandemic.

Is there someone you know who has gone out of their way to help others during the Covid-19 crisis.

Tell us about them. They could become the first ever winner of the Covid Hero category.

Tell us about unsung heroes who have helped neighbours without a thought for recognition for themselves.

There is loads of time to put forward your favourites – and once we pass the nomination deadline, the judges will meet to draw up a shortlist in each category.

Then it is on to the grand finale which will be held on December 15 at the Roker Hotel.

The finals evening will also feature the Young Performer category.
