Focus on what makes your business special, successful and different

1 Stage 1 requires much less information to our judges. There are ten questions to complete, with your answers limited to a maximum of 100 words.

The questions are shown under each category and allow you to convey the most impressive information about your organisation in the fewest words.

2 Focus on what makes you so special, so successful, so different… innovation, developing staff and creating staff opportunities, leading in your field, national successes…

Consider your words carefully to ensure they are as impactful as possible because this is what our independent judging panel will use to determine which entries move to stage 2.

3 You can complete your questionnaire in stages. Just save it each time you exit your application and our judges will review all questionnaires as they appear at the close of the application period.   

4 At Stage 2, we will ask successful entrants to elaborate on their original answers. You can provide case studies and other appropriate information that you feel will support your entry.

At this stage, our judges will compile their shortlists of nominees for the awards night.

5 Shortlisted Nominee videos shown on the awards night will feature your commentary about your organisation. We will help you when we come to film but start thinking now about what you want to say on film to the 600 guests at the awards dinner.

6 We are offering the opportunity to nominate a company for an award. This could be a supplier, a customer or a business you believe should be recognised for their accomplishments.

Complete a nomination form, tell us who is making the nomination and ensure that the company wishes to be nominated.
