Whatever your company size or sector, there are categories to suit your business.

This year, the categories focus on the challenges companies are facing in the wake of both the Covid pandemic and the end of the Brexit transition period. 

Micro businesses and start-ups less than three years old can enter two categories free of charge until the Super Early Bird deadline on March 26th – PLUS they can enter the UK Customer’s Choice Award up until when entries close.

Everyone can enter the UK Customer’s Choice Award free of charge – and it’s the easiest category to enter, too: all you have to do is register, post your logo and company name, and share the logo via social media with your fans and customers.

UK Business Awards Categories

There are three different groups of categories. The first group is Discipline Specific and focuses on activities that organisations have undertaken to change their business. The second group is Industry Heroes, which is about certain types of companies and/or products and services. The third group is Business Heroes in the Crisis, which focuses on the people and teams who made the difference in the last year or so.
