This year ITV News Anglia is once again joining forces with the Daily Mirror to find the individual you think deserves to be crowned our Local Hero 2013.
The ITV Local Hero Award is our way of saying 'thank you' to that person who you know is really special - a friend in need, someone who helps to change the little things that make a big difference not just to you, but to others in your community.
Click below to see how last year's winner in the Anglia region Rob Harriman got on at the Daily Mirror Pride of Britain Awards.
The closing date for applications is midnight on Friday 16 August 2013.
