TIME is running out if you want to nominate someone for a Streets Ahead Award.

Our community campaign, which has been running for eight years, celebrates the best neighbourhood initiatives and local heroes around the city.

We want to hear about green businesses, great gardeners, eco champions and community groups bringing neighbours together from all over Glasgow.

But you must be quick - the deadline for applications is tomorrow (April 26).

The Evening Times Streets Ahead campaign, in partnership with Glasgow City Council, City Charitable Trust and City Building, is now in its eighth year.

We will be awarding eight prizes, including an overall winner, to be announced at a special ceremony on June 18.

There will be trophies for the best garden, best clean-up campaign, best environmental initiative, best community garden, best community initiative and best business initiative, plus a schools award.

The best garden prize will be presented to the best residential garden. We are looking for gardens which are attractive and well kept, which improve the appearance of the local area. Perhaps you live next door to a brilliant gardener who inspires you and your neighbours? Maybe your own garden is a source of great joy for you and your family – tell us why and you could be in with a chance of winning a Streets Ahead award.

The clean-up campaign category celebrates the best clean-up initiatives taking place across the city. We want to hear from people who have come together to tidy up their local area, whether it’s a street, gardens, allotments or even a park.

The Glasgow City Council environmental initiative award will be presented to city’s best “green” project, whether it’s a recycling scheme, a sustainable travel initiative or something completely different, while for the best community garden category, we will be looking for gardens which are used by the whole community.

The winner of the best community initiative category will be an exceptional example of a project which encourages people to work together, which has gone the extra mile to make a real difference to people’s lives.
