​Why Enter for a 2020 Business Award?

Have you thought about entering for a business award....

What is stopping you?


It costs nothing but a bit of your time to complete an application form with a word limit of 1,500 words. It really is that simple! Download our guidance notes here.

Why have you not entered before?


You think you don’t have the time, resources or worried about the process….. download an application form here and it will demonstrate how straight forward the application forms are. They are not designed to trick you or make the process difficult. They are designed to put you in the mind-set to reflect on your business and communicate your vision for the future. It is a great exercise that any business should conduct.

Not sure what category your organisation could apply for?


Download our guidance notes on each category. This provides a breakdown of criteria that our judges are looking for. Identify 1 or 2 that is most suitable for your organisation and download the application form.

Worried the process will demand a lot of your time?


Then don’t! Simply fill out the application form and email back before the deadline on Thursday 8th February 2018 and block out the 7th March for the interview process. If you made the finals you will be told on 22th February and provided with an allocated time slot for a 10 minute interview with our independent judges on the 1st March.

Interview…..?! More of an informal conversation (no presentations… no pressure) this provides you with the opportunity to sell your organisation more and pick up additional points. And that truly is it!

When do you find out if you are successful?


Finalists are showcased on our website on 5th March and at our March breakfast meeting, in the Mansfield and Ashfield News Journal, Chad newspaper and 103.2 radio. So even at that stage you receive free and positive PR!

Winners and finalists are showcased at our Awards and Ball evening on Friday 20th April 2018. All finalists receive exposure during the awards evening along with a certificate and awards logo to use on marketing material.

Winners receive a trophy and winner logo to use on marketing material.

What happens at the Awards evening?


You will be greeted with a champagne reception followed by a delicious 3 course meal. After the meal the awards process starts and organisations are showcased. After the awards ceremony there is plenty of photo opportunity for all to take advantage of! Followed by an excellent live band that guarantee to get everyone out of their seats dancing.

Regardless of results at that stage everyone truly is a winner and guaranteed a fabulous and enjoyable evening and a chance to socialise with the Mansfield and Ashfield business community.


Don’t delay for another day – application deadline is 8th February 2018 and certainly don’t put it off for another year!
