A GALAXY of shining stars has illuminated our search so far for local heroes in the North, East and South East of the city.
Now it's the turn of bright sparks living or working in West and Central Glasgow to step into the spotlight ... and prove that West is indeed best.
The fourth of five stages in the Glasgow Community Champion Awards 2012 is launched today in the most populous area of all.
Of the 141,000 residents who live in the area stretching from Townhead and the Merchant City to Drumchapel and Yoker, we've received hundreds of nominations for citizens who make an indelible mark on the lives of others in three previous seasons of the awards.
And we need you to tell us about those outstanding individuals, brilliant teams, remarkable charities, dedicated public servants, driven sports coaches and uniformed officers whose efforts deserve recognition in 2012.
Philip Braat, chairman of the Central & West Community Planning Partnership Board, said: "It's about ordinary people doing extraordinary things for their local communities and this is a great opportunity to show recognition for all that hard work.
"There's a very strong sense of community - and a lot of people who are selfless.
"The awards improve morale, not only for those who get the recognition, but also for the wider community."
The success of the campaign, which was launched in October 2008 and received unprecedented cross-party support in the Scottish Parliament, relies on the backing of readers to tell us about the people making their communities champion.
It could be a team of motivated students, such as Strathclyde University's Law Clinic, which gives free legal representation to those who otherwise couldn't afford a lawyer, or a teacher like Garscadden Primary headteacher Celine McKinlay who is striving to stamp out sectarianism.
It could be a nomination for a driven Young nominee. Take Knightswood campaigner Ryan McLaughlin who took his drive for Multiple Sclerosis awareness to the doors of the Scottish Parliament, or for a Senior winner like Annie Mead who has played a vital role in supporting Glasgow's Chinese community.
Or it could be a team performing above and beyond expectations, such as the Linkwood Concierge staff in Drumchapel or the volunteers of Radio Lollipop at Yorkhill.
So don't delay, tell us about your West & Central local heroes today by nominating via our website, www.eveningtimes.co.uk or by calling us to request a copy of the entry form.
All entries must reach us by Wednesday, July 25.
Everyone will be welcome to attend an awards ceremony at a community venue on August 16 as another eight unsung heroes will be inducted into our hall of fame for good citizenship.
There are eight categories in which you can nominate.
Ahead of the Commonwealth Games in 2014, we've introduced a new Sport category to honour the teams, clubs and coaches who promote grassroots sporting activities.
A new Uniformed Services category pays tribute to those who keep our communities safe and well.
As with last year, the awards also feature a Health and Wellbeing Award to recognise efforts being made to improve the city's poor health. This award comes on the back of the Evening Times' Glas-goals campaign.
The campaign brings together the West area (from Scotstoun to Drum-chapel) with Central & West (from Merchant City to Anniesland), which had previously been split into individual search areas.
There's no limit on the number of nominations you can make and we welcome entries from nominees and winners from any of the previous three seasons.
A judging panel will whittle down the entries to a shortlist of groups and individuals.
The panel will be made up of representatives from the award partners, Strathclyde Police, Strathclyde Fire & Rescue, Glasgow City Council, Glasgow Community Planning Partnership and the GHA.
To date, we've hosted 28 events in community venues across the city.
Two ceremonies have been staged at Partick Burgh Halls.
Last year's event was invaded by a green army of activists including the G3 Growers, West End Health Walks, community janitor supervisor Michael Burns and the volunteers of the West Glasgow Green Gym.
We've also staged two events at Drumchapel Community Centre.
The collective efforts of three consecutive years of Glasgow Community Champion Awards were celebrated at three gala grand finals at the City Chambers.
All winners across Glasgow will be invited to the Grand Final in December.
