Entries are now open, with first stage submissions closing on 26 November 2021. Entry is very simple and is open to any business with an MK postcode. First stage entry asks businesses to provide some basic information, such as what sectors they work within and how many staff, contractors or volunteers they have and who their customers are. Organisations are then asked to choose up to two categories to enter and each category has a specific question to answer, and that’s the first stage completed!

Martin Lay, Group Development & Performance Manager, Personal Group - winners of the 2020 theme category for Health & Wellbeing – commented, “The Milton Keynes Business Achievement Awards gave a much-needed positive boost to our employees. As we won just before the national lockdown, everyone was entering a period of uncertainty, and sharing some positive news was really great.

“They were easy to enter directly online by drafting the proposed entry and answering some simple questions as a guide.  The awards evening was very well organised and really enjoyable too! I would urge other businesses to take part.”

MKBAA 2022 sees the return of veteran headline sponsors Milton Keynes Council, Shoosmiths and The Open University and is excited to welcome new headliners MK Gateway.
