The HIVE Blackburn & Darwen Business Awards celebrate and reward the outstanding work of businesses from different sectors and inspirational individuals from across Blackburn & Darwen.

Entries are welcomed from any organisation or individual who has benefited the HIVE region (you do not necessarily have to be a HIVE member or have a BWD postcode).

The awards feature categories for businesses across all sectors, as well as awards for individual entrepreneurs and services. There are 22 categories open for entry, with the addition of the Arte et labore and Chairmans’ Awards, that will be announced on the night.

The awards are judged by a panel made up of internal and external representatives. Judges will read and pre-score all entry forms, considering any supporting materials submitted. All judges pre-scores will then be combined and the highest scoring entries will determine the shortlists. Judges will meet to discuss the highest scoring entries and agree the winner for each category. Shortlisted companies from the individual business categories are required to attend a short, face to face interview.
