Five people, groups and organisations in total have been shortlisted for each of the awards' eight categories. The winners will be announced at a ceremony on Thursday 6 February, organised by young people's planning group Tentastic Productions. The event, held at Leeds City Varieties, will be themed around 'Space', and each year attendees go the extra mile with elaborate costumes.
The awards, now in their seventh year, celebrate the achievements of local people and organisations who go the extra mile to make Leeds a child-friendly city.
