What are the UK Enterprise Awards?

The 2018 UK Enterprise Awards will once again strive to recognise and highlight the key players and enterprises within the ever- evolving UK Business scene. From a variety of different industries, The UK Enterprise Awards will reward those who thrive amongst fierce competition on a national scale.

Who can be nominated?

Small to medium sized enterprises based in the UK region. These can be people running small – medium sized businesses, working independently, or running their business from their kitchen table! 

All candidates that have been nominated for the programme have either been put forward by SME-News (these tend to be firms and individuals that we have worked with or profiled recently), or via a third party on our online voting form. Self-nominations are also accepted.

At the point of nomination, we do not ask the individual filling in the form to disclose their details. Tried and tested over the years, we have found that response rates shoot up when the process remains anonymous. Because of this, we do not use the total number of votes as a factor to determining the winners. We prefer to offer everyone a level playing field.

Nomination accepted, what happens next?

Once a nomination is accepted, the nominated party will be moved on to our shortlist. Shortlisted parties are encouraged to put forward supporting materials via our optional questionnaire. This is the perfect opportunity to put forward any projects, products or services you’d like our judging panel to take into consideration.

Our in-house research team will begin to research the shortlisted party extensively online. This will include any relevant information found on public domain sources (such as press releases, client/customer testimonials, social media presence, etc.).

Who judges?

The 2018 UK Enterprise Awards are judged by our highly-experienced panel. It consists of an international, multi-lingual collective of individuals, with backgrounds from a myriad of fields, such as business, media, journalism, history and European languages. The panel is led by a veteran academic leader with international pedagogic and coaching experience who is well versed in research, fact-checking and mediation; allowing the panel to operate with efficacy and dependability.

The costs?

As with all our awards, there are no costs in accepting a nomination, nor if you go on to be successful. We have a highly experienced editorial department who will be producing the annual winners’ magazine, inclusion in which is completely optional and is translated into several paid for packages. Despite this, all winners, as part of our groups’ philosophy are entitled to the complimentary celebration items so that regardless of budget, or company policy, the award and our seal of approval can be strategically maximised.
