Gearing up for the Business Awards

Creative Industries Business of the YearWe’re very proud to have won several industry awards during 2014 – including being named Creative Industries Business of the Year in the prestigious Leicester Mercury Business Awards.

Since receiving the award, we’ve had a great year working on some really exciting projects. So we’ve decided to throw our hat in the ring again, putting ourselves forward in several categories for the Leicester Mercury Business Awards 2015.

Nominations closed on 30th January 2015, which means our submissions will now go through an intensive three-week judging process, which will decide on a shortlist of three entrants per category. The winners will be announced at the awards evening, to be held at the Maher Centre on Thursday 23rd April. Tickets for the event are available now from the Leicester Mercury Media Group.

Here’s what David Simms, Leicester Mercury managing director and publisher, had to say about this year’s entries:

We have had some real quality businesses enter this year, including a number of organisations who have never previously been involved. I am really excited to see who the winners will be at what promises to be another fantastic awards evening on April 23.

We’re under no illusions. Leicestershire is a hotbed of creative business talent, so the opposition is stiff. But, whether we get through to the next round or not, we’re thrilled to be competing against such a formidable array of contestants.

May the best business win!
