MECCA Bingo in Flat Street in the centre of Sheffield has teamed up with Real People Magazine to launch a search to find local community champions.
The campaign seeks to reward the unsung heroes of communities who regularly go above and beyond the call of duty.
There are six different categories and the winner of each will receive £1,000. From those six, the judges will then agree an overall winner who will receive an additional cheque for £5,000.
Categories include caring person, hero pet, unsung hero, neighbour of the year and community project.
People do not need to be a customer of Mecca bingo to enter - visit www.meccabingo.com/champions or see the August issue of Real People Magazine for more information.
