Don’t miss your chance to enter the 2020 Norfolk Business Awards!

Ellen Savory, Archant

As we enter our 30th anniversary year, this year’s Norfolk Business Awards will be dedicated to celebrating the achievements from a range of outstanding local businesses. With the many challenges that the businesses in our region have faced during 2020, it is more important than ever to come together and recognise the sheer resilience, creativity and innovation of our business community.  

Nobody could’ve predicted the impact that the pandemic has had on local businesses across the region and worldwide. However, despite the disruption that Covid-19 has caused, businesses and organisations across Norfolk have gone above and beyond to support our communities and key workers. So, amidst tough times we want to thank those businesses for their efforts and recognise their achievements before, during and after the pandemic.  

Every year the Norfolk Business Awards is a highlight in the business calendar, it offers an exclusive networking opportunity amongst industry leaders and our handpicked judging panels. This year is no different, our nominees reflect the very best of what our industry has to offer – so we will be taking this moment to celebrate the business excellence and emerging talent from across Norfolk.  

With ten categories to choose from, whether you’re a start-up or long-established enterprise, there is a category for everyone – these awards are open to any local business with an inspiring success story worth telling. Once the entry period has closed, all entries are put to a panel of expert judges from the Norfolk business industry. Once the businesses have been shortlisted, judges will select their four deserving finalists per category.  

Alongside our entry categories, all businesses who enter these awards will be put in the running for the non-entry category: Business of the Year award, proudly sponsored by our headline sponsors – Barclays. This accolade will go to a business handpicked by our judges, so it is very important that businesses take time to make their submission stand out.  

As businesses begin to think about entering this year’s awards, they may be wondering why enter? It may seem like a daunting process putting your business forward for a prestigious awards ceremony, but there are many reasons and long-lasting benefits to entering the 2020 Norfolk Business Awards. From raising your business profile by showcasing your work and credentials to industry leaders, to boosting employee morale and motivation by demonstrating that you value their hard work and efforts, to increasing brand exposure and engagement beyond the awards ceremony by differentiating and benchmarking your company against your competition. There are many reasons why businesses should consider entering the 2020 Norfolk Business Awards, read the full list here.  

We hope that Norfolk Businesses will take the time to put their business at centre stage and share their stories with us. Entries must be submitted by Sunday 6th September to be in with the chance of becoming a 2020 Norfolk Business Awards winner.
