TODAY marks the start of the final countdown to the Examiner Community Awards.
Over the next two weeks readers will find out about everyone shortlisted for the awards.
Today the spotlight falls on the Sports Team Of The Year category.
Examiner editor Roy Wright said: "Once again, the search for nominations has thrown up some wonderful stories.
"They range from people who have shown kindness, generosity and courage through to incredibly successful sports teams and organisations or individuals who do so much for the town's heritage, culture and promotion."
The presentation of the awards - run by the Examiner with regeneration company Huddersfield Pride - will be at the Galpharm Stadium on Tuesday, November 16.
Film star Patrick Stewart, who was born in Mirfield and does all he can to support the Huddersfield area, will receive a special Lifetime Achievement award.
The other awards are split into 11 cate- gories.
They are: Friend Of The Year, Services To The Community, Services To Charity, Young Personality, 999 Personality, Sports Person Of The Year, Sports Team Of The Year, Raising Huddersfield's Profile, Customer Care Award, Courage Award and Music And The Arts.
Everyone shortlisted will be invited to the presentation night - along with two guests - when the winners in each category will be announced.
Tickets for the event cost £17 and can be reserved at the Examiner reception on Queen Street South.
They can also be obtained by phoning 01484 437795, but numbers are limited.
