Nominations open in April.


Ceremony is on June 14th.

Hyndburn Business Awards 2016 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 this competition as simple as possible.

The way it works is like this:

When nominations open in April, the nominations page of this site will appear. On it you will find a very simple form on which you can nominate a Hyndburn business for the Stonehouse Logic Award or the Customer Friendly Business Award, or a local person for the Enterprising Person Award.

When you submit your nomination, we 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 H-Award). 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 14th.

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.
