Green-thinking groups, schools and businesses have just two more weeks to get their entries in for an awards event which celebrates the good work they have been doing.
The deadline for the Norwich Eco Awards, run by Norwich City Council in partnership with the Norwich Evening News, is January 29.
The awards, launched last year, highlight the work being done to help the environment.
Entries are being taken for three categories - community groups, schools and businesses - and all entries will be put forward for the eco hero award which recognises people who go the extra mile to be green.

Brian Morrey, executive member for sustainable city development at City Hall, said: 'It is really important for people at a grass roots level to get involved with eco issues. Not only will actions help to improve the area they live in, but also for future generations living there.
'I would really encourage people to enter - I know there are plenty of people doing things out there, we just need them to shout about it.'
