Examiner Community Awards

It’s one of Huddersfield’s most emotional and inspirational nights – and now it’s time to nominate those special people in your community.

The Examiner’s annual search for local shining stars, those unsung heroes and heroines who go above and beyond often without thanks or reward.

These special people are nominated by you and we need your help. Those chosen will be honoured at the Examiner Community Awards 2020 staged at the John Smith’s Stadium on Thursday, September 24.

Examiner editor Wayne Ankers said: “This year is a milestone for the Examiner Community Awards – 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 – and it’s sure to be emotional.”
