Hurry - the deadline for Pride of Britain 2014 is fast approaching!

Nominations close on August 15th Credit: Pride of Britain

The Daily Mirror's Pride of Britain Awards in association with ITV celebrate the achievements of truly remarkable people who make our world a better place.

Nominated by the public, the winners are from all walks of life, of all ages, and from all over the country. Their achievements are awe-inspiring and a lesson to us all. They say they are ordinary people, but their acts are truly extraordinary.

Hosted by Carol Vorderman each Autumn, the Awards attract an audience of around five million viewers every year in a primetime slot on ITV - making it the highest rated awards show of its kind on British television.

How to nominate someone

Who's your unsung hero or heroine? Who do you think is so inspiring they deserve to be recognised with a Pride of Britain award? They can be of any age, from any walk of life and from any part of the United Kingdom, but the one thing they must be is extraordinary.

Perhaps you know a child or adult who has displayed remarkable courage, a gutsy neighbour who has improved your area, a tireless charity fundraiser or an exemplary teacher. People who go that extra mile.

Simply click on the link and fill in the form, or collect a nomination form from your local Lidl store.

All nominations must be received by midnight on Friday 15th August 2014 to be considered for the 2014 awards ceremony. Anything received following this date will be considered for the 2015 awards.
