ENTRIES for the Hampshire Business Awards have now closed, with dozens of companies competing to be crowned the winner in four well-contested categories.
Judges are now deciding which companies will make the shortlist in the light of site visits that are being made.
They will then meet in mid-August to discuss which companies go through to the final stage, with winners announced at an awards dinner in Winchester Guildhall on September 30.
The awards were open to Hampshire businesses of all sizes and entries are being assessed by the panel of judges.
The award categories are: Blake Morgan Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability Award; KPMG Company of the Year; RBS Management Team of the Year, and University of Southampton Technical Innovation Award.
