Rupert Cox, CEO of the Somerset Chamber of Commerce, who organise the Awards, comments: “We are delighted to open the Somerset Business Awards for entries for 2012. The Awards represent a fantastic opportunity to celebrate Somerset businesses.

“The Awards showcase talent and entrepreneurialism in the area, encourage best practice and bring great businesses and great opportunities together.”

The awards are open to Somerset companies of all types and sizes. For entry details and to apply online, please visit www.somersetbusinessawards.org.uk. The closing date for award applications is 5.00 pm on August 31.

Businesses can nominate themselves and are welcome to enter more than one category, but should make multiple applications online and ensure they differentiate between the criteria of each award.
