All great achievements should be appropriately rewarded, so here's Ginger of the Year 2018!

Do you know a redhead who has shown exceptional ginger pride this year? Have they been especially vocal about the need for ginger emojis, or have they stuck up for a fellow red-haired pal in front of a bully?

2018 welcomes our first ever Ginger of the Year Award, in association with our friends at the Anti-Bullying Alliance.

We’re looking for stories of exceptional ginger pride to win this highly coveted achievement of gingerness. Entrants can be anyone of any age and from any country (but must have red hair, of course), with an uplifting gingerful story to tell.

To nominate who you think should be Ginger of the Year 2018, email with a photo of the nominee along with why they should win this high honour (the more detail the better). Entries close on 7 December, with the winner announced before Christmas!
