There are 16 categories and the winners will be announced at an event held at City Hall, Cardiff, in November.

The standard of applicants has been of the highest calibre year-on-year and once again we are ready to welcome nominations from those who wish to celebrate the hard work and commitment of their colleagues or their carers.'

The closing date for nominations is June 25.
