He said: "We want to celebrate the people who make North Norfolk a wonderful place to live and work in.
"There are so many businesses, teachers, police officers, nurses and community heroes across our borough who deserve recognition for what they do in promoting our area or helping its residents in many ways.
"So if you know someone who deserves to be nominated for our North Norfolk News Awards 2021 please put them forward in one of our eight categories to be shortlisted.
"It could be a pub landlord who organises fundraising events, a business that goes an extra mile for customers or a teacher who inspires his pupils or a police officer or nurse who has helped transform someone's life."
