Once again it has been a remarkable 12 months for the county, with success in all sports.

And now it is time for you, the readers, to make your nomination for the prestigious title of Sports Personality of the Year, which will be presented to the individual that our judging panel consider has made truly exceptional achievements in sport in the past year.

The award categories include Coach of the Year, Young Sports Personality, The Power of Physical Activity, and, of course, the Norfolk Sports Personality of the Year Award, presented to the individual that our judging panel consider has made truly exceptional achievements in sport in the past year.

The awards ceremony will take place on Wednesday, November 14 at The Open venue in the Norwich city centre.

So, what are the judges looking for in a Sports Personality?

A male or female performer who has made great progress over the last year, has achieved a great deal, or has made a big difference to a team over the last year

The public vote will be open from Monday September 3 through to Sunday October 7, in line with the other category nominations.

The three athletes who have received the highest number of public votes by the nominations deadline will be put forward for the judging panel, who will decide on the winner based on their sporting achievements and impact on the county.

The three shortlisted finalists will be notified, along with the other award category shortlisted finalists, after the judging date. They will receive two tickets to the awards night, where the winner will be announced!
