Refined Process Boosts Entries for MK Business Achievement Awards

The search is now well under way for Milton Keynes’ leading businesses, which have until 30 November to submit their entries for the prestigious MK Business Achievement Awards.

The awards, which will return for the third consecutive year on 10 March 2016, are organised by the Milton Keynes Business Leaders Partnership (MKBLP), in collaboration with full service marketing agency Interdirect and event management experts Evolution Live.

This year the process for entry has been split into two stages; with stage one simply requiring businesses to answer ten quick questions, including basic details about their company and information about its key attributes and achievements.

The closing date for stage one entries is 30 November 2015. Applications will then be reviewed and approved for stage two, which may require further details to be submitted by 20 January 2016. The judging process will then commence and a final shortlist of businesses announced.

Dr Philip Smith, chair of MK Business Leaders Partnership said: “There are 12 awards categories this year that are open to all businesses in the MK postcode area. For the first time we are also introducing the opportunity to nominate a company, other than your own, for an award. This could be a supplier, customer or a company that you feel should be recognised for their accomplishments.

“We have seen a large increase in the number of entries compared to this time last year which, I’m sure, is a result of both the streamlined process and of the growing success and rising profile of the awards.”
