Time is running out for people to nominate their stars of the Norfolk arts scene for one of our special awards.

The EDP People's Choice Awards are once again part of the annual Norfolk Arts Awards and they are designed to give our readers the chance to shine a spotlight on their cultural heroes.

Whether you want to applaud an amazing show you have seen in the last year, say thank you to an amazing teacher who has truly inspired you in the arts, or celebrate a venue or organisation that is achieving great things for the city and county, we would love to hear from you.

We have already received lots of great entries from across Norfolk, and together they highlight how lucky we are to live in a county that has such a brilliant cultural community, providing audiences with great entertainment throughout the year and also giving people of all abilities the chance to explore their creative sides.

Last year's winners of the EDP People's Choice Awards accolades were Cinema City, Sheringham Little Theatre and comedy duo The Nimmo Twins, and people have until Wednesday, August 16 to submit nominations for the 2017 awards.

There are three EDP People's Choice Awards categories - best individual, best small organisation or group, and best large organisation or group - and you can enter nominations via the form on this story or at www.norfolkartsawards.orgTen nominees will then be selected for each of the categories and an online public vote will then decide who are the ultimate EDP People's Choice Awards winners for 2017.
