North West

CLOSING DATE FOR ENTRIES: 7 December 2018 


The inaugural North West FSB Celebrating Small Business Awards held in March 2018 were a great success, our aim is to recognise more excellent small businesses in our 2019 Awards.

Last year we saw around 200 nominations from businesses across the North West, from all sectors and from self-employed start-ups with great potential through to established businesses which have been excelling for many years.  In 2019 we again have categories which will offer opportunities for all those who run a small business.  Should you wow our judges you will be invited to our North West Area finals on Thursday 31 January at the stunning Hilton Hotel in Manchester.  There you will join dozens of other great small businesses as we announce the cream of the crop for 2019 in the North West. 

The winners in Manchester on 31 January will go through to the glittering UK finals to be held in London in May 2019, where further publicity and accolades await.

We met some amazing businesses through the 2018 Awards process, but we know there are so many more out there who deserve to be recognised for the fantastic work they do.  The FSB Celebrating Small Business Awards recognise hard work, creativity, innovation and all the other things which go into making a small business work.

We hope that you see fit to enter our Awards, there are lots of resources to make sure you get your pitch just right, and we look forward to receiving your nomination.
