Enter the Awards 2022

To enter the awards you can access the online portal via this link:

The online portal allows you to save your entry details as you go so you have almost 6 weeks to perfect your entry. And you can enter more than one category!

We have 15 awards this year which you can directly enter. There will also be a bonus award which is for
“Inclusion”. All finalists in all categories will be asked to answer one question online. Finalists in the inclusion category will be interviewed.

And our coveted Business of the Year will be awarded by the judges from all the category finalists.
