And if she is crowned number one, there are more than £400 of prizes to be won.
If your super mum deserves recognition, then it is simple to get involved – all you have to do is send in a short paragraph of why you have nominated her and a photograph.
Finalists will appear in our Mum Of The Year supplement in April, where a text system will be in place to vote.
Organiser Caroline Whelpton, the Telegraph's Classified manager and head of new business, said: "It is our first award of this type and we really want to know what makes your mum special to you and why.
"A photo of your mum will appear in our newspaper and online publications so this is your opportunity to show how much you appreciate her and tell our readers all about her.
"Some people say it with flowers, but to write something that is personal to you and your mum, is a keepsake forever.
"Whether or not your mum is chosen as Mum Of The Year, I am sure she will appreciate the sentiment and thoughtfulness behind each and every nomination."
The judging panel, who will determine 12 winning mums to go through to the final, are: Jane Whenham White, the head of fundraising and marketing at the hospice, Grimsby Telegraph editor Michelle Lalor and Donna Reed, the director of St Hugh's Hospital.
Mrs Whenham White said: "I think it's appropriate that the hospice is sponsoring Mum Of The Year because we are all about family, not just the person who is poorly.
"Mums are the most important thing in our lives, no matter what age we are. I can't wait to read about your mums."
