What are the EU Business Awards?
The EU Business Awards will strive to recognise and reward the key firms and individuals within one of the world’s most vibrant economic climates.
How did we receive a nomination?
Whether you are a small business or a large conglomerate, to receive a nomination your business must be within the geographical region of Europe.
All candidates that have been nominated for the programme have either been put forward by EU Business News (these tend to be firms and individuals that we have worked with or profiled recently), or via a third party on our online voting form. Self-nominations are also accepted.
At the point of nomination, we do not ask the individual filling in the form to disclose their details. Tried and tested over the years, we have found that response rates shoot up when the process remains anonymous. Because of this, we do not use the total number of votes as a factor to determining the winners. We prefer to offer everyone a level playing field.
What happens should you accept the nomination?
Once a nomination is accepted, the nominated party will be moved on to our shortlist. Shortlisted parties are encouraged to put forward supporting materials via our optional questionnaire. This is the perfect opportunity to put forward any projects, products or services you’d like our judging panel to take into consideration.
Our in-house research team will also begin their own extensive research process to gather information. This will include any relevant details found on public domain sources including press releases, client and customer testimonials, and also any social media presence.
Who are the research and judging panel?
The 2018 EU Business Awards are researched and judged by our highly-experienced panel. It consists of an international, multi-lingual collective of individuals, with backgrounds from a myriad of fields, such as business, media, journalism, history and European languages. The panel is led by a veteran academic leader with international pedagogic and coaching experience who is well versed in research, fact-checking and mediation; allowing the panel to operate with efficacy and dependability.
Are there any costs involved?
As with all our awards, there are no costs in accepting a nomination, nor if you go on to be successful. We have a highly experienced editorial department who will be producing the annual winners’ magazine, inclusion in which is completely optional and is translated into several paid for packages. Despite this, all winners, as part of our groups’ philosophy are entitled to the complimentary celebration items so that regardless of budget, or company policy, the award and our seal of approval can be strategically maximised.
