The More Radio West Sussex Awards 2020 has been rescheduled to Friday 25th September 2020.

On Friday 25th September 2020, we ‘ll be at Hickstead Showground to celebrate all that’s great about our area, recognising everything from flourishing businesses, true community spirit, sporting brilliance and individuals with a heart of gold within West Sussex.

Nominations have now closed.

We’ll be awarding the achievements of some inspiring people, groups and organisations from across West Sussex, in the following categories.

Good luck to all our shortlisted nominees.

This award recognises someone who raises funds for one or more of the amazing charities we have in our community. Not necessarily who has raised the most money, maybe someone who really gives their time, heart and soul to charitable endeavours.


We want to recognise a local person whose life story is an inspiration to others. Someone who’s shown years of dedication to help others in the local community, or someone who’s overcome extraordinary odds to achieve success.

We’re looking to recognise a special parent who’s love and commitment to their family knows no bounds, no matter what the circumstance. Don’t leave it to the kids to nominate – maybe it’s your spouse or friend that deserves this award?

Whether it’s a delicious bar snack at your local, or the most lavish fine dining experience, or something in between, we want to hear about the place that keeps you going back for more.

We’re looking for a young person, under 18, who deserves special recognition. Whether they’ve had to overcome illness, disability or tough personal circumstances, or someone who has achieved something significant academically or through a talent.

Campaigning for change, improving the local area or maybe making it a safer place. We’re looking for someone who’s made a huge contribution to the community.

We want to give this next award to someone who truly defines the word “inspiration”. Whether it be through one act of bravery of selflessness or years of determination and hard work.

This is a very special award to celebrate a special individual, group or charity that have a real success story to tell and have really made a difference.

If you know of a company that’s been running for 18 months or less, and has shown outstanding potential and drive, or demonstrated excellent customer service, we want to hear about them.

This award recognises a charity, or fundraising group who have worked tirelessly to really make an impact within West Sussex.

We’re looking for a local success story; a company that’s made gains in turnover, demonstrated great service and done an exceptional job of standing out from the crowd.

We want to recognise a local individual or team who’ve excelled in their chosen sport over the last twelve months. It’s not necessarily about how many trophies are in the cabinet; skill, determination and teamwork are just as important

This is your chance to nominate the teacher, head teacher or teaching assistant who you think deserves ‘gold star’ recognition. We’re looking for someone whose true talent and passion lies in teaching and inspiring young people.

Nominations have now closed.
