Nominations

Nomination for HERO Awards 2018 has closed.

 

Heroes come in all shapes and sizes. What they have in common is making a difference in the lives of other people. Sometimes it’s many people and sometimes it’s just a few, but any good deed is worth celebrating. Shine a light on your heroes by nominating them in one or several categories. They can be people or organisations who directly help others, whose work is improving the wellbeing of others, or whose achievements are inspiring others. All award winners receive a FREE trip to Bangkok and a range of gifts. Nominations are FREE and close at 5pm on Sunday 30 September 2018.
