It is one of the most eagerly-awaited occasions in the north-east sporting calendar.
And a diverse group of personalities, ranging from Olympic champions to rising stars and unsung heroes, are on the shortlist for the 2015 Sport Aberdeen Awards.
The winners will be announced during a glittering ceremony at the Beach Ballroom on Thursday, October 8.
Neil Fachie, the redoubtable cyclist who struck gold at the 2012 Olympics and 2014 Commonwealth Games, prior to winning the para-cycling world title this year, features in two different categories, including Male Sports Achiever of the Year.
And he is up against swimmer, Robbie Renwick, who claimed a world relay gold medal in Kazan in Russia this summer.
There are two outstanding candidates in contention for the Female Sports Achiever of the Year accolade.
Debbie Moore started life as a swimmer, before moving into running marathons, and progressing from there into the triathlon sphere, where she has enjoyed remarkable success.
Rhona Auckland, meanwhile, is one of Britain's most promising athletes and is the European women's under-23 cross-country champion.
The awards are aimed at highlighting the quality of local athletes, coaches and volunteers in the region.
And it's a measure of how successful Aberdeen's sports teams have fared recently that there is no place for the likes of Lewis United 2003, who won all their games at the Norway Cup.
Instead, the Club of the Year nominations are Cove Youth Football Club and Bucksburn Netball Club.
Eyebrows might also be raised at the absence of boxing star, John Docherty, who produced a golden show at the Commonwealth Youth Games in Samoa last month.
The awards show will pay homage to those who have excelled at international level, but also recognise veteran stalwarts on the grassroots circuit.
And there is also an emphasis on highlighting the next generation of Fachies and Renwicks.
The Student of the Year category, for instance, includes gifted rower Lewis McCue, who has savoured success at national and global level.
He will be up against talented athlete Kelsey Stewart, who has already burst into the GB team with a series of impressive performances.
It promises to be an evening to remember.
