The Queen’s awards for enterprise


Nominations are now open for the prestigious Queen’s Awards which recognise and encourage the outstanding achievements of UK businesses. Now in its 52nd year, the Queen’s Awards are the most prestigious business awards in the country, recognising and celebrating outstanding achievements by UK businesses in the fields of Innovation, International Trade, Sustainable Development, and Promoting Opportunity.

Past Queen’s Awards winners have reported increased commercial value and greater press coverage, with research showing that nearly 75% of past winners saw an increase in international sales after winning a Queen’s Award.

The awards are open to applications from almost all businesses of all sizes throughout the UK in every sector, and last year 86% of winners were SMEs.

Applications close at midday on Friday 1 September.
