Organisers of the 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games have issued a final call for those who want to volunteer at the sporting event.
Up to 15,000 people are needed to become "Games makers", in the style of the volunteers from the London Olympics and Paralympics, and the application process closes in a week.
Organisers are looking for some people with specific skills such as medical training and specific sports knowledge, but the majority of roles require no previous experience.
Once the applications close, a shortlist of 25,000 people will be interviewed in Glasgow between April and December.
The event will mark the biggest peace-time deployment of volunteers in Scottish history, Glasgow 2014 said.
Valerie Mitchell, head of the Games workforce, said: "We have been really inspired by the application process so far and the huge enthusiasm and excitement we have had from people, so we want to ensure that everyone who wants to volunteer makes the most of this chance.
"Some people have made a start on their applications on the system, but not submitted them yet, so we would urge them to be mindful of the February 28 deadline, too, and make sure they have everything in and complete. There is no need to have volunteered before - what matters most is a smiling face, a winning attitude and friendly banter - all qualities which people here have in abundance."
The volunteers campaign was launched by Olympic super-heavyweight boxing gold medallist Anthony Joshua last month.
He said: "Volunteers are at the heart of any major Games. From an athlete's perspective, they're the friendly faces you see around the village and around the competition venues, enjoying themselves and being a part of something special.
"We've seen recently the positive impact volunteers had on the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, and I'm sure that enthusiasm will roll over into another exciting home Games in Glasgow in 2014."
