Votes are set to come pouring in as part of a south Norfolk 'Community Pub of the Year' competition.
South Norfolk Council launched this year's contest - which has been running for nine years - at South Norfolk on Show in Long Stratton on July 2.
Michael Edney, the council's deputy leader, said: 'It's great for the pubs as it gives them some fantastic publicity and can really boost trade.
'There are some wonderful places, serving great food and beer, bringing people together and playing a huge part in local life. We want to hear what makes your pub so special, so show them how much you value them and vote for them.'
And this year it is not just the pubs that can win - there is a host of prizes for residents on offer from breweries, eateries and pubs via the council's Facebook page.
