There are three categories for nominations.
Which is actually what the Vision Group for Sidmouth is all about - particularly now.
The Awards are about all the efforts being made in these difficult times - looking after both neighbours and neighbourhoods, keeping going through the pandemic, and yet still taking care of the planet as we go about all of this.
It's all about "becoming part of a team, a chance to talk with like-minded people and make friends, and a sense of feeling needed" - says Denise Bickley, co-sponsor of the Awards.
Looking back at the last eighteen months, it's been very much about keeping our economy and community vibrant.
And as Louise Cole of the Sidmouth Coastal Community Hub says, it's also about "a collective strength that will not only help us to recover but to flourish as we move forwards resiliently into the next chapter."
Fundamentally, as VGS chair Peter Murphy says, it's all about "being thoughtful about what we’re doing now, so that our grandchildren can enjoy the fruits of our planet just as we do."
Whether it's the green groups and initiatives in the Sid Valley which have managed to do great things even during lockdown.
Or the shops who’ve been ditching plastic wrapping, the hotels who’ve cut down on food waste, and the restaurants who source locally-grown food.
Or the families who’ve created ponds in their back gardens, and who’ve seen Devon staycations as a way to enjoy what we have in our green and pleasant back yards.
