Nominate your BBC Unsung Hero now

This year the BBC have joined with Made By Sport to recognise the power of sport to change lives and build better futures. They are celebrating the people and projects that are really making an impact, and need your help to find them.

All over the UK sport brings communities together, and they want you to tell them about your community's unsung hero. You can send in their story by video or write to the BBC via the nomination form. If you need some inspiration, check out the video and text examples on their website.

You can also send in your nomination via email. Just download the form on this link and send it to

When can I nominate someone?

Send the BBC your nominations for this year's award between 17 September and 20 October 2019.

How is the award decided?

Your nominations are entered into a local award for your BBC nation or region. After a panel discussion, the local winners are announced in each of the 15 regions.

The 15 winners then go to a national panel, of current and former sports stars and people active in sports volunteering. They reach their decision, with the winner being announced live on television at the Sports Personality of the Year Awards on 15 December.
