BBC awards are UK based awards and are presented by British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) annually in December. Formed in 1954 by Paul Fox, It initially consisted of just one award, but several new awards have been introduced since then. The winner of the main award is presented with a silver-plated four-turret lens camera, and the other winners are awarded the smaller imitations of this trophy.
The three national regions of BBC organise individual sports personality awards, and 12 local English Regions of BBC hold their own award ceremonies which take place before the national ceremony. All regional winners are included in the nominees of the BBC Sports Unsung Hero Award.
