This year marks the 10th anniversary of the Active Essex awards - now called the Essex Activity Awards - which is open to workplaces, sports clubs, coaches and competitors for nominations.
Azeem Akhtar, chairman of Active Essex, said nominating a sports club or individual is a chance to celebrate somebody's resilience and spirit over the past 18 months.
Azeem said: "People have been inspired to move more.
"Everyone has come together as a community in what has been a difficult time.
"Active Essex want to continue to inspire and motivate residents.
"In celebrating many achievements, we hope it will kick-start more people in the journey to a healthier lifestyle."
