The deadline is looming for businesses to enter one of the region’s annual awards competitions.

The closing date for the Red Rose Awards, which aims to crown the best of the best of the county’s firms, is January 17.

Last year’s event attracted an audience of more than 900 for the celebration at Blackpool’s Winter Gardens.

Organised by Lancashire Business View magazine, this year’s event has joint headline sponsorship, with Forbes Solicitors reaffirming its support for the fourth year running, and Barclays joining for its first year.

Richard Slater, publisher of Lancashire Business View said: “First and foremost the Red Rose Awards are about giving Lancashire business the opportunity to show how great it is; how deep its commercial excellence runs. We are giving businesses the chance to shout about what they do and why they are the best at it – and we hope they’ll grasp that opportunity with both hands by entering. There is at least one category applicable to every business in the county.

“We know the business community love participating in the awards – if you experience the Red Rose Awards either by entering, judging, sponsoring or attending on the night, we ask that you encourage your clients, suppliers and associates to enter!”

Other sponsors include 2BR/The Bee, Abbey Telecom, BAE Systems, Federation of Small Businesses, Fuse Fund.
