Examiner Community Awards

Examiner Community Awards 2021 will launch in January.  Until then please take a look at our awards ceremony to learn more about this years finalists and winners.  WATCH HERE.

The 2020 Awards took place on Thursday 25th June, staged live from our lock down lounge.

The Examiner Community Awards is one of Huddersfield’s most emotional and inspirational nights as we recognise the local shining stars, those unsung heroes and heroines who go above and beyond often without thanks or reward.

Examiner editor Wayne Ankers said: “The 2020 Awards is a milestone for us – it’s our 21st year. It is amazing to think that it’s two decades and in my time at the Examiner it’s been an honour and a privilege to meet so many deserving people who would otherwise go unrecognised.

“There is such incredible work that goes on in Huddersfield and so many selfless people who just want to help others. It’s humbling to know that in some small way we can say thank you to the people who make Huddersfield such a fabulous place to live.

“Community awards nights is one of my favourite nights of the year.”
