A business awards competition that feeds into next year’s Sheffield City Region contest is open for entry.
The 2016 Barnsley and Rotherham Business Awards, in association with RNN Group, is welcoming entries until September.
Winners of a B&R Chamber award will automatically go through to the City Region Awards in 2017
The awards are open to any business with an ‘S’ postcode and all members of Barnsley & Rotherham Chamber of Commerce regardless of location.
Andrew Denniff, chamber chief executive, said: “This is our once-a-year opportunity to celebrate all that is best in business innovation, enterprise and growth across our region. I would encourage as many businesses and individuals as possible to consider putting their names forward and get yourselves recognised for your tremendous achievements over the past few months”.
The ceremony will be at Magna Science Adventure Centre on Friday, October 14. It has 11 categories and an overall Business of the Year.
This year’s categories are: Most Promising New Business, Business Growth, Business Community Impact, Manufacturing Excellence, Design and Innovation, Business Person of the Year, Skills Development, Excellence in International Trade, Digital and Creativity in Business, Apprentice of the Year and Tourism, Leisure and Hospitality.
Chamber charity members will have the opportunity to be recognised as the ‘Secure Power Charity of the Year’ and will receive a prize donation towards their chosen project.
