The countdown is on to find the winners of the inaugural Causeway Coast and Glens People of the Year Awards.
The inaugural awards are supported by Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council.
Speaking at the launch Mayor Councillor Joan Baird OBE said: “What is most pleasing about these awards is that many of the categories are recognising community; voluntary or charitable work that is going on across our Borough on a daily basis.
“The unsung heroes who work tirelessly for others, often with little or no reward or recognition for no other reason than to enhance the quality of life of people living around them. Very often these people give their time and energy without complaint so it is only fitting that we as a society acknowledge the contribution that they make to community life.
“I have no doubt that the awards will be a huge success and that you will have no shortage of worthy nominations and people to honour at the ceremony in June.”
