THE Pride Awards is a celebration of all those unsung heroes living in our communities across South West Wales. It is an occasion at which the Evening Post honours people who give up their time to help others to make the region a better place to live, plus those who show great courage.
We first launched our search for nominees for the contest towards the end of last year with our call for entries.
There was an incredible response and we were impressed with the heart-rending stories which came in.
It was a tough task to decide who would make our shortlist.

But after much thought, the final list of nominees was drawn up and put before three independent judges — Swans manager Michael Laudrup, musician and entertainer Mal Pope along with Swansea Lord Mayor Dennis James.
They had to decide the winners from the three nominees in each of the 10 categories.
The categories include good neighbour or volunteer, child of courage, community champion, charity champion, bravery, grassroots sports coach, carer, teacher or mentor, along with lifetime achievement and ambassador.
For the third year running the paper will be hosting the special occasion at the city's Brangwyn Hall.
All the nominees have been invited along to the special ceremony tomorrow, where the winners will be announced.
It promises to be a fun night packed with surprises and, above all else, pride.
