How to Enter



We’ve simplified the entry process this year and made it really easy to enter… all you need to do is:

1 – Click on the category you wish to enter
2 – Read the information and guidance on what the judges will be looking for
3 – Click the ‘Enter Now’ button and this will take you through to the entry form



The entry form should be COMPLETED IN ONE SESSION as leaving the page will result in the loss of data. We therefore advise taking a look at the list of questions that will be found on the form below, compiling your application offline and then copying the information into the online entry form when ready to submit.


The entry form asks for the following information:

  • Name of the business
  • Main office location
  • Website address & social media handles
  • Main contacts name, telephone no & email address
  • Financial information* (only required for certain categories – see below)
  • An overview of the business (max 200 words)
  • Reasons for the nomination, recent achievements and how your business stands out from competitors (max 1000 words) 
  • Development plans for the next 12 months (max 200 words)


You can also upload the company logo, a photo to support the entry and up to 4 supporting documents.


*The financial data will only be required when entering one of the following categories and will ask for turnover, net profit and reserve figures for the last 3 financial years.:

  • Company of the Year
  • Newcomer of the Year
  • Small Business Award
  • High Growth & Ambition Award
  • Manufacturing Award
