A business awards scheme is urging enterprising firms to enter – with the chance to claim a year’s free energy as the top prize.
Details of the Best of Britain Business Awards 2019 have just been revealed by organiser Love Energy Savings.
They will honour inspirational companies that have made a difference to their customers, community or the planet.
Applications are open for the awards that are now in their sixth year.
The competition is split into five regions – Wales, Scotland, North of England, South of England and Midlands – with a £200 prize up for grabs in each.
The regional rounds are sponsored by EDF, Total Gas & Power, Octopus Energy, Avanti Gas and Love EnergySavings.
The winners will then progress to compete for the Grand Prize, which includes an eye-catching trophy and a year’s free energy courtesy of Love Energy Savings themselves.
All five regional winners will also be invited to a celebratory round table event at the Love Energy Savings HQ in Bolton in November, where they will be able to swap advice and discuss future ventures.
The event will be heavily publicised, giving the businesses valuable press coverage.
The application process runs until October 4, with the regional winners announced a week later (October 11).
The Grand Prize winner, which will be decided via a public Facebook vote, is set to be unveiled on October 18.
The entry form is simple to complete, with candidates asked to answer one question: “Tell us why you should win?”
Phil Foster, CEO of Love Energy Savings, said: “Through talking to our customers we know there are some fantastic businesses across the UK that are outshining their rivals at the same time as undertaking some highly philanthropic feats.
“This can be innovation in their industry that will make a difference for years to come, looking at how changing their business practices can have a positive effect on the environment, or charitable work that helps local communities.
“We want to really shout about their achievements and the Best of Britain Business Awards 2019 will showcase the amazing things they’re doing.
“It’s all about rewarding and recognising passionate people and groups who are making a real difference.”
