2,005 volunteer awards for 2005.
The commemorative medal, produced by the Royal Mint, is being awarded as official recognition of the positive contribution made by volunteers across England.
Across the country, more than 26 million people volunteer their time each year and volunteers engage in a wide variety of projects that help their local community, from supporting the homeless, disabled people and older people, to working with young offenders, improving the environment and looking after animals.
The closing date is July 18.
Nomination forms can be found online at www.csv.org.uk. Alternatively, forms can be requested from Community Service Volunteers on 020 7812 0034.
The categories are: Commitment, impact, inspiration, innovation and partnership.
The short-listed volunteers will be awarded their medals by Lord Lieutenants and Lord Mayors in a series of regional ceremonies this autumn.
Particularly outstanding volunteers will be invited to a national ceremony in early 2006.
