Each year the People of the Year Awards, which will again be shown live on RTÉ One television in December, shine a light on some of the many unsung heroes who are living in communities throughout Ireland.
This year is particularly special for the award scheme, as they will be celebrating their 40th anniversary. During this time, they have honoured some of the most inspirational people in Ireland.
If you think you know someone who has done something extraordinary, who has made a real difference, who has gone above and beyond the call of duty and whom you feel deserves a People of the Year Award, then nominate them now. You can also nominate in one of the specific categories, Young Person of the Year, International Person of the Year, Sports Person of the Year or Community Group of the Year.
The closing date for entries is September 12 and nominations can be made at www.peopleoftheyear.com or by writing to People of the Year Awards, Roslyn Park, Sandymount, Dublin 4.
