Nominations for HAwards19 are now open. Click on the nominate tab.


The 2019 ceremony will be at Accrington Town Hall Ballroom on Tuesday June 18th.

Hyndburn Business Awards 2019 is organised by Enterprising People, in association with many local businesses and organisations.

Our aim is to recognise and celebrate the enterprising people and businesses that make Hyndburn such a wonderful place to live, work and visit.

We are determined to make participating in Hyndburn Business Awards as simple as possible.

The way it works is like this:

You can now nominate for HAwards19 by clicking the nominate tab and visiting the nominations page. On it you will find a very simple form on which you can nominate a Hyndburn business for the Beacon Award or the Customer Friendly Business Award, or an individual, group, club or association for the Pride of Hyndburn Award. You can also nominate inspirational local female business owners or those in a local leadership role for the Enterprising Woman Award. Nominations can be made until April 16th, and you can nominate as many Hyndburn businesses as you want to, even your own (but not for the Customer Friendly Business Award, because only your customers can nominate you for that).

When you submit your nomination, we will contact the business or person you have nominated and invite them to enter the competition by completing an entry form. On the entry form they can choose which other award categories they would like to enter. We ask them to provide us information about why they should win the award categories they want to enter. This helps the judging panel consider all the entries in May.

Judging is divided into two activities: shortlisting and deciding the winners. The judging panel consists of local business people (none of whom will be nominated for an HAward). A representative of the category sponsor joins the judging panel for the award they sponsor.

If a business is shortlisted in any award category they get a free ticket to the Awards Ceremony on June 18th.

The winners are announced at the Ceremony, where they will receive a framed certificate and a trophy which has been designed and made by a local secondary school.
