The Royal Life Saving Society UK are delighted to be supporting this year’s Pride of Britain Awards, sponsored by the Daily Mirror, and they’re on the look-out for the nation’s unsung heroes.

Regularly attended by royalty, the Prime Minister and leading politicians, as well as some of the biggest stars of showbusiness and sport, Pride of Britain is the most prestigious and best-known event of its kind.

This year is the 22nd year of the ceremony and a year with more reason than ever, to celebrate the resilience, courage and heroism of people from all over Britain.

They want to hear from YOU – our customers, members, clubs, branches and volunteers – and the everyday heroes you think should be nominated.

You can nominate anyone of any age for a Pride of Britain Award. It may be for a single act of incredible courage, a long-lasting battle against the odds, or for inspirational campaigning.

Please choose what you feel to be the most suitable category from the list below. Don’t worry if you’re not sure - some nominees may fit in more than one category, so the Pride of Britain team will make sure all nominations are considered for the most appropriate award.

Winners will be chosen by the Pride of Britain judging panel, from a shortlist produced by the Pride of Britain research team, who will consider every public nomination received.

Deadline for nominations is Friday 13 August 2021 but the sooner you submit your choices, the more time there is for them to be researched and shortlisted.
