The Birmingham Mail Pride of Birmingham Awards, in partnership with TSB, celebrate amazing unsung heroes from the city and its surroundings.

We search for inspirational people from all walks of life, but the one thing they have in common is that their achievements are awe-inspiring and a lesson to us all.

Whether that’s someone who is quietly transforming their community to improve the lives of those around them, or someone who has put themselves in danger to save someone else, or a tireless campaigner.

They could be six or 106 - heroism has no age barrier - and they could have changed one life, or changed the world.

Winners, chosen by the Pride of Birmingham judging panel, will be honoured in front of a star-studded audience at the glittering Awards dinner at The Great Hall, Birmingham University in April.

They will also go forward to the judging process for the Daily Mirror’s Pride of Britain Awards, in partnership with TSB, which are screened on ITV in the Autumn.

Since the first Pride of Britain in 1999, royalty, prime ministers, and hundreds of leading figures from showbusiness, sport, politics and the arts have all taken part.

See the categories and nominate here.
