FIRMS have just a few weeks to make sure they enter The News Business Excellence Awards.
Those lucky enough to be short-listed will be invited to a glittering ceremony at the Guildhall on February 10.
Once again the awards have been sponsored by one of our biggest local success stories, BAE Systems.
And this year the awards have expanded to include new categories.
They now feature Apprentice of the Year, Retailer of the Year, Start-up of the year and we have a category for Hospitality, Tourism and Leisure.
We have also combined our previous categories of Business Personality and Achiever of the Year into one.
Our Community Contribution category has expanded to include ﬁrms which have been dedicated to improving their green credentials. And for the ﬁrst time, each of the winners in our 12 categories will go head to head for the chance to be crowned overall Business of the Year. Not only that, but each of the category winners will be automatically entered into the Southern Business Awards, held in Brighton by our parent company Johnston Press next summer.
To enter the awards, see portsmouth.co.uk/enterbusinessawards to download the nomination form.
They need to be emailed back to firstname.lastname@example.org, or sent to her care of the Editorial Department, The News Centre, Hilsea, PO2 9SX, by December 30.
