  • Best contribution to advancing diversity
  • Outstanding leadership, dedication or success in local government
  • Outstanding contribution from a Welsh Young Liberals member
  • Outstanding non-elected campaigner
  • Local Party of the year

Any member may make as many nominations as they wish in as many categories as they wish. Nominations will close at 6pm on Sunday 20th October.
