Inspiring Aberdeenshire

Inspiring Aberdeenshire is one of the council’s biggest annual events. The awards celebrate the achievements and successes of our people across Aberdeenshire who go the extra mile for their communities, often with little or no other official recognition. Nominations have closed for the 2023 awards, and once the judges have agreed a shortlist we will publish that list on this page.

Thank you to everyone who nominated in 2022 and well done to all of our 2022 winners  

You can watch a recording of our 2021 ceremony on our Facebook or YouTube channels.

In previous years we have had performances during the night from local dancers, singers, school choirs, even a skipping group. We are always keen to get local performers involved throughout the night. If you are involved with a group who would like to be on stage with us at the next event, please email us with a short description of who you are and what you do. Video links will also help the organisers better understand your performance.
