LincolnshireLive Business Awards 2022 now open for applications

The LincolnshireLive Business Awards for 2022 are underway and open for applications from companies in the county.

Hopeful businesses are already submitting their applications in a number of categories with eyes on the big prizes to be awarded at a glitzy ceremony in October. Businesses have until August 28th to get their applications in.

In association with the Lincoln Chamber of Commerce, Lincolnshire Live is running the annual business awards competition and accepting applications until the deadline of August 28th. Companies and business leaders will compete across 14 different categories, designed to recognise outstanding achievements in trade and commerce over the past 12 months, in the face of considerable challenges.

The pressures of the past two years, and the unprecedented disruption of Covid, have only emphasised the enterprise and resilience of businesses in Lincolnshire, which these awards will recognise and celebrate as never before.

Simon Beardsley, chief executive of Lincolnshire Chamber of Commerce, said that the awards represented a golden opportunity to shine at a time when the economy of the county as a whole was “on the road to recovery”. He said: “The Chamber has been involved in this event for years, and we are very excited to again be partnering to deliver these prestigious awards.

“We want to keep supporting the excellent work that businesses of all sizes across all sectors do in Lincolnshire, and one of the best ways to do that is to show what we can offer and celebrate together.

“By entering these awards, you don’t just stand a chance to take home a coveted trophy on the night, you will also receive many marketing opportunities, helping you to be seen by a huge audience. Not only does winning an award turn the spotlight on your business and all the great things that you do, it’s also a chance to come together, make those all-important new connections, and strengthen our sense of community – as we are all on the road to recovery.”

"It’s a chance to come together, make those all-important new connections, and strengthen our sense of community."

Natalie Fahy, editor of LincolnshireLive and the Lincolnshire Echo said: “There are so many great businesses in Lincolnshire, it’s a pleasure to come together to recognise all they do and just how much they contribute to the economy of the county.

“These businesses create jobs, bring investment into Lincolnshire both from the rest of the UK and internationally, and drive the economy forward by adapting to changing times. After the tough times we’ve had we’re thrilled to welcome applications and nominations for this year’s awards and look forward to the big ceremony in October.”

The awards officially opened on June 6th, with nominations and applications now being accepted for all categories. The winners will be announced at a black tie ceremony on Thursday, October 20 at the Lincolnshire Showground.
