JUDGING is underway for the 2006 Anglian Business Awards.
For the third year running, the awards have attracted well over 100 entries and the judges yesterday began the task of sifting through the submissions to select a shortlist of three finalists for each of the 14 categories.
As ever, each of the category winners will then go forward to be judged for the overall Business of the Year title which is again being sponsored by Bank of Scotland Corporate as part of its overall support for the awards as main sponsor.
All the finalists will be invited to attend the black tie awards dinner on Thursday, November 16, being held at the new Trinity Park conference and events centre on the edge of Ipswich which is acting as venue sponsor for the awards.

EADT business editor Duncan Brodie said: “This is the ninth year that the East Anglian Daily Times has staged the Anglian Business Awards and it is tremendous to see them going from strength to strength.
“The spread of entries across the various categories and their overall quality looks to be the best yet and I can see some tough deliberations ahead for the judges over the coming weeks. We are very grateful to all those organisations which have taken the time to enter.
