People of the year awards

It’s true. You have to be pretty amazing to win a People of the Year Award. That’s what makes winning one so very special!

Do you know a potential winner? Someone who has put themselves in harm’s way to rescue a person from immediate danger? A local hero who has made a big change in the lives of people in your community? Perhaps a campaigner who has selflessly championed a cause to right an injustice?

Then why not tell us all about them at www.peopleoftheyear.com!

2012 marks the 38th People of the Year Awards, organised by Rehab, and which will be broadcast live on RTÉ One on Saturday 15th September.

In addition to a number of People of the Year Awards, there are also specific awards for:

Young Person of the Year — an individual under 25 years who has been a real hero and role model for others

International Person of the Year — an Irish person who has contributed with distinction to the wider world, or a non-Irish person who has done something exceptional to enhance our lives in Ireland

Sports Person of the Year — a person or a team that has broken records, overcome the odds, caused the nation’s heart to skip a beat

Community Group of the Year — a community group that has stepped up to do something really epic

This is your chance to honour those inspiring people who change our world. All it takes is one nomination.

Closing date for nominations: June 29 2012
