About the awards

The Echo Awards is our annual community event dedicated to recognising the remarkable and inspirational people of Merseyside. They celebrate the astonishing individuals who have done extraordinary things. From children with the hearts of lions to community volunteers who go the extra mile for others, we see some terrific examples of people in our community who deserve our recognition.

It's the people who make Liverpool and the whole city region great and every year at the Echo we publish countless stories about truly amazing people doing selfless and remarkable things. This is our opportunity to honour these people at a glittering awards ceremony to celebrate the wonderful characters who make us proud to live and work in Liverpool.

The event takes place on Friday 9 September at the prestigious Titanic Hotel, where guests can join us and a few famous faces for dinner, entertainment and few drinks to celebrate the everyday acts of kindness that make a difference in people's everyday lives.
