You can nominate anyone of any age for a Pride of Birmingham Award. It may be for a single act of incredible courage, a long-lasting battle against the odds, or for inspirational campaigning.
Please choose what you feel to be the most suitable category from the list below. Don’t worry if you’re not sure - some nominees may fit in more than one category, so the Pride of Birmingham team will make sure all nominations are considered for the most appropriate award.
