The UK Business Awards 2021 are now open

Awards News

By Donna O’Toole

The 2021 UK Business Awards will recognise the organisations, teams and individuals that are shaping the future of British business and enterprise.

Now is your chance to get involved and showcase the excellent work that your company or organisation has achieved.

With 26 categories ranging from ‘Best New Business‘ and ‘Best Marketing or PR Agency‘, to ‘Best Customer Experience‘ and ‘Best Sustainability Initiative‘, there are categories to suit all.

This year, there is a focus on how businesses have coped with the pandemic and the Brexit transition period. If you have overcome these challenges with great success and innovation, you might be interested in categories such as ‘Best Business Response to the Crisis’ or ‘Best Brexit Business Response’.

Also new for 2021, you only need to submit a written entry, which will make up 100% of your score. In past years, finalists have had to present live to the judges, so if presenting live isn’t your strong suit, then this year could be the time for you to enter!
