Huw Moseley, Bromsgrove District Council’s arts development and events officer, said: “If you know someone who deserves to be nominated for one of these awards, we want to know about it.
“The awards are all about celebrating the people that make up the spirit of Bromsgrove so make use of the extra week and get nominating.”
A shortlist of nominees for each category will be determined by a panel and the winners will be revealed at a prestigious ceremony held at Artrix.
