THE QUEEN’S AWARDS FOR INTERNATIONAL TRADE

The Queen’s Awards for Enterprise are one of the most prestigious awards in the world a UK business can win. The Queen’s Awards only have four categories open for nominations and a notoriously rigorous criterion to fulfil.

INTERNATIONAL TRADE

To enter the International Trade category you must;

  • have had a minimum turnover of £100k in overseas sales in each year of your entry
  • prove that your organisation’s overseas growth is outstanding for your business size and sector
  • prove steep growth in overseas sales over 3 years – or substantial year-on-year growth over 6 years

If you have already been awarded a Queen’s Award for Enterprise for International Trade you can apply for a new award, but only if you can prove;

  • substantial year-on-year growth over 6 years if you’re in the fifth and final year of your current award
  • steep year-on-year growth in overseas sales over 3 years if you’re in the second, third, fourth or final year of your current award

Take a look at our inforgraphic below to find out if you’re eligible or watch our short video explaining the criteria.
