IS your business flourishing no matter what the tough economic environment throws at it?

The Express is looking to celebrate the success stories of companies with our annual business awards.

For a third year, following on from great events in 2011 and 2012, we will hold a glittering awards ceremony in honour of the area’s finest businesses.

Once again the event will be made possible by our overall sponsors Chadwick Lawrence Solicitors, and we are asking you to nominate your company or staff into one of the categories.

There’s something for everyone, whether it be small start-ups or industrial estate factories, and there are awards that span pure economic success through to helping the environment.

This year we are again asking you to nominate a member of staff for Employee of the Year - the only category that will be voted for by Express readers. A judging panel will determine the other winners, and there will also be a Businessperson of the Year award unveiled on the night.

We’ve tried to make the nomination process as easy as possible - head to this web address - www.wakefield businessawards.co.uk

You can also submit a nomination or ask any questions on email via markbradley@wakefieldexpress.co.uk

Deadline for entries is Friday May 10.

The awards evening will take place at the Cedar Court Hotel on Thursday June 20, and will be hosted by BBC Look North’s Clare Frisby.

Tickets and tables are available for this prestigious black tie event, and can be ordered by emailing our events manager andrew.crabtree@jpress.co.uk

Sponsorship opportunities remain for individual categories contact John Bottomley on 0113 238 8835, via email at john.bottomley@jpress.co.uk or on Twitter @JohnAB72.

Last year’s entrants found out what a boost it was to be short-listed or to win one of these awards - this year it could be you.
