The votes have been counted - and the winners can be revealed.
After months of planning and preparations, we're thrilled to be able to announce the winners of the first ever North Norfolk News Awards.
It follows several weeks of voting where readers have been able to vote for your favourite nominee from a shortlist of three in eight different categories.
We've given each of the winners a trophy - a small thank-you for everything they have done to to make North Norfolk a better place.
North Walsham Premier stores owner Russ Harmer won our Businessperson of the Year Award, and our Moment of the Year Award went to street artist Banksy's contribution to a Cromer sea wall.
A message from News' chief reporter Stuart Anderson
Our heartfelt congratulations to everybody who was nominated, and most of all to the winners.
