News: Chamber business awards open for entries


Local businesses now have the opportunity to compete for recognition at the annual Barnsley and Rotherham Business Awards ceremony taking place in the autumn.

The awards will acknowledge the achievements of the region's top firms in ten award categories - in addition to the much-coveted RBS Business of the Year trophy, which is chosen from the top performers in other categories.

The event, in association with Bull Information Systems, will attract hundreds of guests keen to recognise the region's businesses and challenge for prizes at Rotherham's Magna Centre on Friday October 18.

Businesses of any size and operating in all industry sectors that fulfil the criteria are encouraged to put themselves forward for one or more of the ten accolades.

Richard Stewart, service manager at Bull Information Systems and one of last year's winners, said: "The awards are the headline event of the business calendar within our region and provide businesses and individuals the opportunity to show exactly what makes Barnsley and Rotherham great!

"After enjoying significant wins at the 2012 awards ceremony, including winning the overall Business of the Year, Bull understands what a vital part in all of our businesses celebrating success plays, and for that reason I urge you to enter."

Entries are now being accepted in the following categories:

• The Source Most Promising Business Start-up Award
• The Begbies Traynor Business Growth Award
• The Rotherham Local Strategic Partnership Business Community Impact Award
• The Tata Steel Excellence in Manufacturing Award
• The Barnsley College Skills Development Award
• The Morrison Facility Services Innovation & Technology Award
• The Bull Information Systems Business Person of the Year Award
• The Solar Europa Environmental Business Award
• The ASD/Rotherham United FC Excellence in Export Award
• The Gala Tent Apprentice of the Year Award

Companies can also book on to a practical workshop on preparing and writing your entry being held at the Chamber's offices at Templeborough on August 7. The Chamber is also looking to acknowledge companies in Barnsley and Rotherham who are celebrating 50th, 75th or 100th anniversaries in 2013.
