Nominate

The Sunday Mail and Steven Brown Art Great Scot Awards are on a mission to find the greatest people in Scotland who currently go unnoticed.

Who do you believe makes Scotland great?

Our previous winners range from a charity campaigner to the lifesaver, the brave mum or dad to the voluntary worker. Now we want to hear from you about your Great Scot and their story.

In September our esteemed judging panel will select a shortlist of ten unsung hero finalists, as well as four community champion finalists from all nominations received.

The winners will then be revealed at this year's gala dinner held at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Glasgow Central on Saturday 27th October, 2018.
