The FSB Celebrating Small Business Awards recognise and celebrate the huge contribution that smaller businesses and the self-employed make to the UK.

We celebrate the UK’s small businesses and recognise each and every person, company or family that owns, runs or works in a smaller business. They are our innovators, our economic drivers and the backbone of our communities. It is their businesses that embody the creativity and resilience that fuels the UK’s prosperity.

FSB’s Celebrating Small Business Awards is the largest event of its kind in the small business calendar. On average over 8,000 small businesses register and enter our awards programme.

Our UK winners are all outstanding examples of successful and diverse small businesses.

The concluding event in our annual event programme, our UK Final, sees 132 finalists from 11 categories and 12 area / nation finals from across the UK come together to see who will be both the overall winner in each category for the UK but also who will be the overall FSB Celebrating Small Business of the Year.

Our awards are open to entrepreneurs across the small business community, both members of FSB and non-members. This year, Rt Hon Boris Johnson MP. Prime Minister addressed our UK Finalists to congratulate them on their achievements.
