Nominations are now open for the Bradford Means Business Awards 2019

Has your company had a bumper year that needs to be recognised, or does one of your colleagues deserve recognition for their efforts?

Is your business very much family orientated and deserves recognition or do you run a company which excels in customer service?

Is making a contribution to the community your business is placed in high on your agenda, or do you regard your business as being the top manufacturer in the district?

If so, make sure to nominate them for the Bradford Means Business Awards 2019 which this year takes place during a glitzy, Oscar-style evening on July 18.

Among the 11 categories featured here in this supplement, there is sure to be one to suit every firm or entrepreneur.

This year there are a number of changes. Woman in Business, Young Entrepreneur, Retail and Hospitality and Business personality categories have been taken out and replaced with Business Entrepreneur of the Year, Customer Service Excellence Award, Contribution to the Community Award and Family Business of the Year.

You can use our online nomination form to nominate for any of these categories, via this link

If you want to nominate someone for more than one award, you will have to fill in a form for each individual award.

We reserve the right to move entrants to different categories if we think they meet the criteria for other awards better than the one that they have been entered


The deadline for entries is Friday, April 5, but the earlier you submit entries, the more time we will have to consider your application and make sure you are in the correct category.

After the deadline, our judges will assess all entries and draw up three candidate shortlists for each award,

Each finalist will then be invited to attend a glittering awards ceremony where they will face a nailbiting wait to see if they will be crowned the winner.

We will aim to focus on some entrants in the coming weeks, so please submit your nominations as soon as possible.

The ceremony itself will take place in the grandeur of a huge awards marquee to be located in City Park.

The red carpet will be rolled out for the black tie evening with a full drinks reception, meal and entertainment with the backdrop of the impressive mirror pool and the beautiful City Hall building.

This is the first time the awards have been held in City Park and tickets are likely to be very limited given its unique location along with the opportunity to host an evening for colleagues and clients at what is likely to be the biggest business celebration night in the district during 2019.
