SME News are delighted to present to you the annual UK Enterprise Awards, proudly encompassing a multitude of exciting and vibrant business industries from across the UK.
As a business community, the UK, is renowned for its ability to thrive in diverse conditions and strive through times of economic uncertainly. For this reason, SME News celebrates and showcases some of the triumphs from those among the UK’s strongest and most innovative businesses and business owners within the UK Enterprise Awards each year.
In a business landscape on the precipice of change, one thing remains a standard in the UK, a strong work ethic and a diverse and vibrant business culture which, year-upon-year provides numerous successes and victories which can too often be over-looked. With SMEs widely being recognised as being the backbone of the nation’s economy, honouring these businesses, and their perseverance through this demanding period seems appropriate.
Taking part in the UK Enterprise Award programme is the perfect way to show your employees that their efforts are valued by the organisation, whilst also providing the public with evidence of your successes as a business. Notifying stakeholders of your participation in our programme indicates that your business is garnering the attention of third parties, and that word or your expertise, customer service or products offered are creating a buzz within the sector, industry or market.
Winning an UK Enterprise Award is obviously, the goal as this provides you with evidence you need to prove, beyond a shadow of a doubt, you outshine the competition. Enhancing your victory with visual reminders, allows for the promotion of your brand to extend even further, which in turn can attract talented new employees, looking to work for the best and new clients and customers looking to work with the best.
With award categories for overall business management, growth, products and services offered, and even highlighting specific achievements by individuals, our award programme is the perfect way to commemorate the momentous developments undergone by your business, enterprise or initiative.
Of course, our programme is open to all small businesses operating in the United Kingdom, we also encourage those companies and organisations, who facilitate the growth and development of the business community, to join the programme and allow for their efforts in making certain an equitable opportunity exists for these new and innovative endeavours to thrive.
Our awards are based on merit, not the number of votes received. Our process works to ensure that we reward parties based on their excellence in the industry, the quality of their products and their dedication to service.

Jessie is inspired by the subscribers, followers and clients of SME News and is keen to ensure that within the UK Enterprise Awards we showcase the businesses that truly are doing great things and stand out within their field for the great service and/or products they offer to their customers.
The SME News team work ardently to identify market leaders, innovators and enterprising start-ups, driving many of the nominations themselves.
We also encourage external nominations via the SME News subscribers, online visitors, social media followers, clients and wider circulation.
Nominating parties are invited to put forward either third-party businesses whom they hold in high regard, or their own organisation.
All nominees are formally requested to accept their nomination. Should any firm or individual rather decline at this point, they are simply taken out of the running.
Those formally accepting are given the opportunity to submit additional materials in support of their nomination. Although there is no obligation to complete and supply material, we have found that many nominees value this stage, in the process, as much as our research team do.
Our dedicated research team will assess all information presented to them.
The team gather information independently from a variety of publicly accessible sources, which are assessed alongside any material supplied by a nominating party or the nominee themselves.
The research team casts their final judgment, based on various criteria including: client dedication, innovation, business growth, longevity, online reputation, customer feedback and business performance.
Once winners are determined, they are personally notified before any public announcement is made, allowing time for any communications throughout the wider business and the coordination of marketing strategies.
Unfortunately, not everyone can be a winner; however, all who take part are encouraged to come back next year.
Once the press embargo is lifted, details of our SME award winners will be made public via the website, award winners’ magazine and subscriber newsletter.
We are prepared to offer a range of promotional packages and items to SME award winners, which vary from inclusion in the free-of-charge winners’ directory, to trophies, content in our magazine and on our website.
We encourage all winners to publicly announce their win independently. Announcements via company websites, social media, via publicly released press releases, and through local and national press are all are great ways of maximising the exposure which can be gained from such an amazing achievement. If you have need of further advice, on how to gain maximum exposure from your win, please feel free to get in touch. We are happy to assist our clients with their needs.
Our featured winners are included in our celebratory awards magazine, published online and circulated to the circulation of SME News. All winners are included in our winners directory.
