The Daily Mirror Pride of Britain Awards, in partnership with TSB, are back in person and at the Grosvenor House Hotel to honor the nation’s unsung heroes.
The awards that celebrate ordinary people with exceptional accomplishments are now open to nominations and the search for this year’s incredible and formidable winners is on.
In a year of extraordinary challenges, uncertainty and change, it is more important than ever to recognize and reward individuals or groups who: – have shown truly outstanding brave individual deeds, fought seemingly hopeless battles against all odds, demonstrated incredible feats of compassion or have inspired a nation with their tireless dedication to others. Five or 105 can be nominated – heroism has no age limit.
Who can forget some of the extraordinary 2020 winners – Special Award Winner Colonel Sir Thomas Moore, whose monumental fundraising for the NHS inspired the nation, our incredible NHS Frontline Heroes, who were honored with a special award by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge for their tireless work became a pandemic effort and a domestic violence survivor who, with the help of the Prince’s Trust, founded an ethical apparel brand dedicated to domestic violence fundraising and awareness.
The Daily Mirror Pride of Britain Awards, hosted by Carol Vorderman, are the largest national event of its kind, and our great winners will be celebrated in a high-profile red carpet event and prime-time special on ITV this fall, packed with emotion, surprises of celebrities and magical moments that will capture the hearts and imaginations of the nation.

The winners are selected by the Pride of Britain jury from a shortlist of all nominations received.
Hostess Carol Vorderman said: “It’s always so exciting and an honor to meet the Pride of Britain winners. They are the absolute best of our wonderful country, but they also tend to be incredibly humble, which is why we need people to tell ”us about them. So if you know an unsung hero, whether it’s someone who changed a life or the world, tell us about it and nominate for Pride of Britain today. “
Debbie Crosbie, CEO of TSB, said: “TSB is proud to have been supporting the Pride of Britain Awards since 2016. We look forward to celebrating the nation’s everyday heroes every year. This has been an especially difficult year for so many people, and so it is more important to recognize the contribution of those who do so much to improve the lives of those around us. They don’t seek credit for what they do, but we love to be part of the credit for their accomplishments as they help their communities live more deserving lives. “
