Arts collective Made In Corby have decided on ten "Living Legends" for an exhibition coming up at the Rooftop Arts Centre.
The project funded by the National Lottery received many entries from the public which were featured on social media before judges sat down to select the final ten.
They are being visited by a writer and photgrapher to document their stories - the ten range from a shopkeeper on the Kingswood estate to the founder of Adrenaline Alley.
Other nominations are also set to be featured in the exhibition in a big screen at the centre - while photography workshops will look to get more people in the town involved.
The exhibition is set to open for a month from May the 2nd.
