You may be in a small village, or small town, but we want to give you international recognition. So if you are anywhere outside of the UK, you can enter, as long as you are locally owned. You need to be owned by the people who work there.
For inspiration, have a look for our blogs. There is a lot of information there about how you can write a winning entry, and what type of entries we're looking for. What we're really looking for is your story. Every small business has a story to tell, and in the past year that story could well be about a struggle to survive during COVID-19. Ideally, your story should focus on providing a quality service or product, giving local employment, and serving a local community. And doing all of that with pride, and being proud to be local.
