Nominations are being invited for a prestigious award recognising the individuals or groups which best represent Angus.

The Angus Ambassador Awards celebrate those whose achievements inspire and motivate people in our area to be the best they can be.

The award falls under the auspices of the Angus Ahead programme and the organisers are keen to hear from the public.

The awards will be presented by Angus Provost Helen Oswald at a ceremony in the Carnoustie Golf Hotel on November 29.

She said: “I am so impressed by the talent I’ve seen in Angus and the inspiring individuals who I’ve met through the Angus Ambassador Awards.

“Often their work goes unnoticed but it’s important to shout about it so that everyone can appreciate their efforts.

“Apply now and get the recognition you deserve.”

Categories for the Angus Ambassador awards are as follows:-

Angus Ambassador of the Year; Business Ambassador; Community Ambassador; Cultural Ambassador; International Ambassador; Tourism Ambassador; Youth Ambassador

The deadline for nominations is September 17 and can be made online at, or printed forms can be found at Angus Council museums, libraries, leisure centres and ACCESS offices. It presents a great opportunity to promote a group or cause.

Applications will also be entered into a raffle to win a hamper of goodies. Stay up to date with the awards at, @AngusAmbassador or on Facebook.

Past Angus Ambassadors have recently included Brucefield B&B in Arbroath, Carnoustie Gala Committee, Paul Grant, chairman of Mackays Ltd,. and Sheriff Norrie Stein for his work with the CAFE Project.
