The Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) is encouraging small businesses in the North East to enter the Celebrating Small Business Awards 2018

The awards, which are free to enter until 10 November, will celebrate the best of the area’s 67,800 small businesses and their contribution to both regional and national economies.

The North East area winners of 12 award categories will be announced at an award ceremony in January and will then go forward to the national UK FSB Celebrating Small Business Awards final, where the overall FSB UK Small Business of the Year 2018 will be announced, in May 2018.

Ted Salmon, FSB regional chairman for the North East, said: “For a chance to be recognised as the best small business in the North East, as well as in the whole UK, I’d encourage all small businesses to enter the FSB Celebrating Small Business Awards.

“SMEs are a vital part of the North East – contributing so much to the economy and making our region a more exciting place in which to live, work, study and visit.”

The 12 FSB Celebrating Small Business Awards categories are:

• Business Exporter of the Year • Ethical – Green Business of the Year • Business and Product Innovation Award • Digital Business of the Year • Microbusiness of the Year • Start-up of the Year • Scale-up of the Year • Family Business of the Year • Young Entrepreneur of the Year • Employer of the Year • The Triumph Over Adversity Award • Community Award (area level only)
