It is a chance to recognise everyday heroes and the people in our communities who go above and beyond.
And the judges who came together to sift through the nominations for the EDP Stars of Norfolk and Waveney Awards certainly found it a tough task to whittle down the many inspiring and moving entries to come up with a final shortlist.
Joshua Hopkins, of The Hopkins Charitable Fund, said: "It was an honour to be part of the judging panel.
"Some of the stories about the nominees were truly inspirational and it was incredibly difficult to choose the winners as they were all worthy of recognition.
"There are so many fantastic initiatives in our area, many of them run by volunteers and other unsung heroes.
