The Argus Achievement Awards return for a 13th year, with a brand new name, logo and award categories to recognise the outstanding achievements of men, women, children and organisations across Sussex.
The ‘Community Stars Awards’ champion all those who deserve recognition for their selfless, brave or generous actions during the past year and provide an opportunity to honour the men, women and children who have touched all of our lives.
The Argus Community Stars Awards will conclude with a lavish ceremony at the Theatre Royal Brighton on Saturday November 1, 2014.
But the awards could not go ahead without you, our readers.
We want to hear who you think is deserving of an award?
Tell us about your inspirational teachers, carers, volunteers and pupils.
We want to know which charity deserves recognition along with the most deserving business in the community, event, school, local hero and many more.
There are a number of ways you can have your say. You can simply fill out the online entry form.
You can also send your suggestion by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please include your name, address and contact number along with your nominee’s name, address, category and reason for nomination.
A panel of judges, led by The Argus editor Michael Beard, will then select the top three in each category in time for the October ceremony.
Mr Beard said: “The event is a fantastic opportunity to recognise the unsung heroes across the community which we serve.
“They too often go unnoticed and this is a great opportunity to thank them.
“I would encourage everyone to take a good look at the categories and to nominate those they think deserve the recognition.”
