Dozens of hard-working and deserving people have been nominated for this year's Stars of Lowestoft and Waveney Awards - but there is still time to get your entries in.
After the success of the inaugural Stars of Lowestoft and Waveney Awards last year, The Journal and our sister paper, the Eastern Daily Press, have brought the event back for a second year.
Organisations such as Kingsley Healthcare, Waveney District Council, Waveney Norse and Lings Motor Group have again agreed to come on board as sponsors.
A glittering awards night is due to take place at Lowestoft's Hotel Victoria on Monday, November 7 2016.
Journal editor Andrew Papworth said: 'It's heartwarming to see how many entries we already have for this year's event.

'It clearly shows there are an awful lot of fantastic people in Lowestoft and Waveney striving to do the very best for their communities.
'If there's someone you know who you think deserves recognition, please don't hesitate to nominate them. We want this event to be a celebration of all that's good in the community.'
