- Outstanding Community Organisation Award: A community organisation that made a difference to the local community.
- Community Special Award: An individual that has contributed positive lifelong service to the area.
Councillor Susan Eaves, town chair for Rowley Regis, said: "This awards scheme is a very good way of local people giving a big thank you to people who have gone the extra mile for the area.
"I would urge people to get in touch to vote for people and groups who have made Rowley Regis a better place."
Anyone who wants to vote must be based in Rowley Regis and all projects must take place in the town.
All entries will be judged by an independent panel involving local councillors. Deadline for nominations in the Rowley Regis Community Awards 2019 is Friday 18 January 2019.
Submit your nominations online. All selected nominees will be invited to an awards evening in February.
