Before You Enter: What You Need To Know

Free entry in all sectors and categories

We know that many small business owners, entrepreneurs and larger organisations don't like to pay up front for awards, where fees range from £99 to more than £250 per category. With us, all your entries are free.

You only pay a fee if you win an award

It just makes sense. Why pay an entry fee when you get nothing in return? If you enter an award sector with Business Awards UK and win, you pay an Award Acceptance Fee, then enjoy a raft of benefits for winning.

Social media marketing is important for all businesses, which is why we announce your accolades on social platforms, and regularly engage with you and your followers.
