Terms of Entry
All entries must relate to activity during the financial year April 2013 - March 2014.
Where appropriate, applications are welcomed and encouraged from businesses of all sizes, educational establishments and other public bodies. There are separate entry criteria for each of the award categories, however award sponsors are prohibited from entering their own sponsored category.
The awards are open to all companies and organisations with a significant presence within the West Midlands Region. However, applications will also be considered from businesses based on the fringe of the West Midlands area, as long as a significant interest within the area can be demonstrated, eg customer base, workforce, etc.
The Birmingham Post will assign a judging panel with an appropriate chairperson. Every effort will be made to give feedback to entrants, although no specific correspondence will be entered into. The decision of the judging panel for each award and on all associated matters is final. The judging panel will have the opportunity to see all entries in each category (but a number of specific entries will be highlighted to the judges for their consideration).
All entries must be received by 5.00pm on Friday, 26 September 2014. They can be submitted via Claire Parker, (Ref: BPBA), Trinity Mirror Midlands, Floor 6, Fort Dunlop, Fort Parkway, Birmingham, B24 9FF. Please clearly mark as to which entry the information is to be included with and which category. When posting supporting documentation, please submit 7 copies of everything.
Information submitted, apart from financial and employee data, may be used within our publications and on event material - therefore please ensure that all documentation submitted is not of a confidential or sensitive nature.
A shortlist of the 3 or 4 top entries for each category will be decided by the judging panel and shortlisted companies and organisations will be announced in The Birmingham Post after the closing deadline of Friday, 26 September 2014.
The awards will be presented at a gala awards dinner on Wednesday, 26 November 2014 at The International Convention Centre.
Birmingham Post, Trinity Mirror group companies and selected Birmingham Post Business Awards sponsors may contact you and your nominated companies by email, phone or letter with details of relevant goods and services you may be interested in. You will not be charged for these messages.
