Is there someone in your community you want to nominate as a local music champion?

15th April 2015

The BBC is launching BBC Music Day’s Unsung Heroes, a UK wide search for individuals who have made or are continuing to make a big contribution to music in their community.

Is there someone in your community you want to nominate as a local music champion – someone who has had a significant impact on music in the area, and who stands out through their dedication to music, for example by supporting young musicians or setting up a community choir?

A BBC panel will compile a shortlist from which they will select five winners who will receive a BBC Music VIP Pass, giving them and their friends tickets to a major BBC Music event of their choice, from the BBC Proms to the BBC Music Awards to the Radio 2 Folk Awards and beyond.

Registration closes at 23:59 on Friday 24 April 2015 and the winners will be announced during Steve Wright in the Afternoon on BBC Radio 2 between Monday 1 to Friday 5 June 2015.
