Examiner Business Awards

The Examiner Business Awards celebrate the very best in business across Huddersfield and Kirklees.

The Examiner Live and executive partners Bramleys highlight and celebrate the companies, business leaders and the teams who have demonstrated the foresight to drive their business – and the region – forward.

Over the past fourteen years it has been fantastic to see so many businesses in the region rising to the challenges presented, showing not only how talented they are but also their endless determination, entrepreneurial spirit, enterprise, innovation and creativity to make it happen.

Our awards aim to recognise that drive and ambition and celebrate all the success stories.

The awards will be presented at a glittering black tie ceremony at the John Smith’s Stadium in November when category finalists join our judging panel and leading figures from the business community.

We look forward to highlighting  your business achievements and showcase to the wider world how Huddersfield and district is a great place to do business.
