Today is the last opportunity to enter this year’s East Anglian Daily Times Business Awards.


But with the entry process designed to be as quick and easy as possible, you still have time to get your submission in before tonight’s deadline.

The EADT Business Awards are being jointly sponsored for the third year running by Suffolk Chamber of Commerce and EDF Energy, with their support including the overall Business of the Year award, the recipient of which is chosen from among the other category winners.

The wide range of categories includes dedicated Small Business, Medium/Large Business and Family Business awards, ensuring there is an opportunity for businesses of all sizes and sectors to achieve recognition.

Aspects of business covered by specific awards include Customer Care, Community Involvement, Environment & Sustainability and Health & Wellbeing at Work.

Other categories include Food & Farming Excellence, Business Broadband, Community Safety & Crime Prevention and Raising the Bar, a new category for business-education initiatives.

In addition, there is a One to Watch award, exclusively for firms forming part of the EADT’s Suffolk Future50 listing of up-and-coming businesses, and there are also two categories for individuals, Director of the Year and Young Business Person of the Year.

One individual or organisation will also receive an Outstanding Achievement award although this, like Business of the Year, is not open to direct entries.

Full details of all the categories and how to enter can be found at Don’t miss this unrivalled opportunity.

  • I would have through it would be better for third parties to nominate a business for an award rather than apply themselves.
