Business Person of the Year

This award will go to a business person or entrepreneur who shows outstanding initiative, boldness and imagination in the enterprise, as well as sound management practices. Entrants to this award will be expected to demonstrate sustainable growth combined with a degree of commercial success that is exceptional for the size of the business.​ Our judges will be looking for entrepreneurial skills and evidence of how they have seen opportunities and are striving in their business.​

Best Environmental Business

Open to any company, organisation or individual that can demonstrate that they are working to help protect the environment  through sustainable business practices and a commitment to lowering the carbon footprint of their business activities.

Best New Business (under 2 years old)

You’ve come into business in the last 2 years (start date after the 1st Jan 2018) with a bang and are really getting noticed for what you do. Tell us what makes you the best of a great new crop.

Best Eatery

Open to any establishment that serves food – cafes, bars, restaurants, hotels and pubs. People know what they are getting when they step through the door – quality food and a high standard of customer service. The winners will provide an exceptional all-round dining experience as standard.

President’s Award – Best Not-For-Profit Organisation Charity, Community Group or Community Interest Company (CIC)

This category celebrates Charities, Community Businesses and Not for Profit Organisations. What these businesses have in common is that their focus is on positively benefitting society. All profit from a community business is reinvested in the local area and all profit from a charitable organisation goes to fulfilling their objectives.​
