There are ONLY 7 days remaining to get an entry into the Shropshire Chamber Business Awards 2019.

The awards are open to all companies in Shropshire, both large and small and unlike many awards they are completely FREE to enter.

Companies are not limited to the number of award categories which they can put themselves forward for and they are actively encouraged to enter multiple categories which are relevant to their business.

A separate entry must be submitted for each category submission, as no two entries can be the same given the difference in criteria.

Duplicate submissions for multiple categories will not be accepted and this will exclude them from entry. We urge all companies to study the criteria before applying as awards are judged on this set criteria.
