Mayor of Hackney, Philip Glanville said: "Hackney is a brilliant and inviting place thanks to the hard work of those who go the extra mile for their communities.

"Previous winners and nominees have been incredibly inspiring and have given us a chance to give proper recognition to some of those unsung heroes working in our communities."

Nominees for the civic awards can be of any age and from any background, however nominations for young people under 18 must have their parent or guardian's permission.
