‘‘It’s also a great platform to recognise individual­s and groups who have made achievemen­ts in a range of pursuits including sports and the arts.’’

Nomination­s are currently being accepted in the following award categories: Citizen of the Year

Young Citizen of the Year Sportspers­on of the Year
