Businesses entering the Somerset Business Awards must meet the following criteria:


Businesses must be based within the administrative boundaries of Somerset. Whilst we are keen not to discourage quality entries from within the historic boundaries of Somerset, we will also accept entries from the following North Somerset postcodes: BA3, BS21, 22, 23, 24, 39,40, 49

The business should have its head office within the defined eligible area set out above. If this is not the case, the entry MUST demonstrate that the enterprise has local autonomy over business planning, marketing, HR and budget.

Shortlisted companies must be available for judges interviews and site visits during 3-20th September 2019

Businesses can enter more than one category, but a separate application must be made online for each category.

Only entries submitted online via the Somerset Business Awards website can be accepted

Decisions by the judging panel are final but feedback is available where requested.
