The Best Business Awards are globally recognised. Now in their 10th year, these well-established business awards are one of the longest standing, well established and accessible awards bodies open for entry. The Best Business Awards are open to private and public sector organisations of all sizes. Offering a range of categories that is far broader than most on the business awards circuit, the Awards attract entries from across all sectors, from large international PLCs and public sector organisations to dynamic and innovative SMEs. Typically, most Business Awards will open in the spring and close in the autumn, with winners being announced and awards ceremonies taking place at the end of the year.

The Best Business Awards are a little different, we recognise the importance of accessibility when it comes to winning an awards. That’s why we offer businesses the opportunity to submit for, and go on to win an award with us on a quarterly basis.


There are four rounds each year with quarterly deadlines being the last working day of January, April, July and October and winners for each round hold their title for twelve months. Therefore you can enter when the time is right for you, as many times as you wish during the course of the year.

Furthermore, they are run and administered by *Awards Intelligence*, the market leading awards specialists. The Best Business Awards are judged by an independent judging panel, just like any other award, but their connection with such expertise mean they are able to go a step further to support potential winners, offering our clients drafting services, saving them valuable time and effort by curating compelling entries that maximise their chances of winning.

A popular feature of the BBAs is that, unlike most awards, it’s affordable. Our entry fee’s are reasonable, and we don’t hold an awards dinner at which winners are announced. So no need to take a table for ten if shortlisted, along with all the associated costs such as hotel accommodation and travel. Instead, winners are advised by email about six weeks after each quarterly deadline. We then offer winners benefit packages to help you make the most of your awards success and to make your budget work as hard as possible.
