The judges chosen as the independent panel responsible for picking the winners are local entrepreneur and longstanding judge Affy Qadeer, previous winner Tanweer Dean and the Standard editor, Ross Crawford.
Affy urges people to write giving as much detail as possible on the local heroes they want to nominate. "It can be a very difficult decision to make. There are so many unsung heroes who are the heart of the town."
Rebecca added: "I'm delighted Tanweer, a community leader in her own right, will join us along with Ross who takes more than just a professional interest in the town as well as Affy - our very own Simon Cowell."
They have an unenviable job as we have had a large number of nominations for people who had saved lives, people who have made lives, both through their paid & voluntary work and businesses who have gone above and beyond.
Our Pride of Redditch judges for 2015 are:
and Ross Crawford (Redditch Standard)
