Our regional awards allow SMEs and enterprises of all sizes to showcase their achievements in just about every business sector – whether you are entering as a lone wolf or for a large business with several staff.

If you need any assistance completing this form, please contact us:

Award winning entries typically provide over 500 words providing meaningful and relevant details related to the categories they have entered. Telling us why you are entering these particular categories tends to help. Be specific: for example, if the category is Fastest Growing Company, provide details of how your company has grown and include basic revenue figures (eg. YoY £/%) so we can get a feel for the business growth you’re experiencing. Where possible and relevant to do so, including links to reviews/testimonials and digital assets to support your entry will also help.
