The shortlist for this year’s Doncaster Business Awards has just been announced, with an assortment of impressive nominees spanning a total of 13 different categories.
Taking place on Thursday, December 1, this will be the annual ceremony’s 24th iteration and will take place at the usual venue of Doncaster Racecourse. The black-tie event always proves to be a highlight in the local business calendar, as it celebrates standout achievements from charities, SMEs and larger companies across the borough.
Nominations for the 2022 awards opened back in June, allowing firms to put themselves forward for a diverse range of categories, including the likes of: “Start Up of the Year”, “Excellence in Customer Service”, Marketing Campaign of the Year” and “Success Through Innovation and Diversification.”
Following this, the submission forms were evaluated and scored by panels of experts to produce shortlists for each category. These finalists (announced earlier today on social media) will now enter into the second stage of judging, which involves a rigorous interview process led by peers from the business community, so that the overall winners and runners-up can be decided.
Reflecting on the shortlist, Dan Fell, Chief Exec of Doncaster Chamber, said: “As is always the case, I am amazed by the calibre of our nominees here.
“We all know that the past few years have been incredibly trying for everyone, and times are certainly tough right now for our business communities. Firms are currently dealing with major issues in terms of people and skills, supply chains and the rising cost of doing business, yet our resourceful private and voluntary sector in Doncaster can always be counted on to rise to the challenge.
“Our nominees exemplify the very best of this tenacious and entrepreneurial spirit. They have all accomplished so much in the face of great hardship and their remarkable achievements deserve to be recognised. With that said, I would like to congratulate each and every one of them and am eagerly looking forward to celebrating with them on the awards evening itself.”
Tickets are now available to purchase for the Doncaster Business Awards 2022 and there is also still an opportunity to sponsor the Marketing Campaign of the Year category. For more details, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
