Brand new to 2017 are The Small Awards, giving smaller and lesser-known businesses the chance to shine.
The organisation was built on the idea that many small businesses often miss out on receiving awards, even if they have grown and had a lot of success in the past year. In the UK alone, there are more than 5 million small businesses. However, most of these fail to win an award, and not necessarily because they are performing poorly. Businesses located in remote or quieter areas may never get nominated for an award, and those which advertise to a narrow audience may also be missed.
