We are celebrating the eighth year of the Evening Times Glasgow Community Champion Awards and the search is now on to find the heroes of 2016.

We have already rewarded more than 330 community champions from across the city who make our communities great.

So whether you or someone you know has made a difference by caring for others, campaigning for better services, or in general creating a positive environment, we want you to tell us about it.

We are also delighted to once again be working in partnership with Glasgow City Council, Glasgow Community Planning Partnership, Glasgow Housing Association, Scottish Fire and Rescue and Police Scotland, who will each assist in our search for this year’s champions.

The finalists will be chosen at three events which will take place across the city.

The winners from each local event will be automatically selected as finalists for the prestigious awards ceremony which will be held in the City Chambers on Thursday, December 1, 2016.
