Time is running out to nominate Aberdeenshire’s local heroes for a top community honour.
People who go the extra mile are still being sought for the Inspiring Aberdeenshire awards, with the deadline for nominations now extended to February 15.
There are 10 categories, including a “best of” honour for each of Aberdeenshire’s six areas: Banff and Buchan, Buchan, Formartine, Garioch, Kincardine and Mearns and Marr.
There will also be outstanding leader, young leader, pupil voice and Doric dialect awards handed out.
Provost Hamish Vernal said: “Anybody can nominate a person or group for an Inspiring Aberdeenshire 2017 award, and we want to recognise as broad a range of community heroes as possible.”
Council co-leader Richard Thomson said: “Inspiring Aberdeenshire is a great opportunity to recognise those who are doing that bit extra to improve their communities for the benefit of everyone.
“I’d encourage everybody who has seen the good work done by others to put them forward for recognition in our 2017 event.”
