Calling all SMEs – The Telegraph Festival of Business SME Award 2017 competition is now open to entries.

The Telegraph is pleased to announce that for the fourth year in a row we are on the hunt for the best small or medium-sized business in the country.

As we look forward to this year’s Telegraph Festival of Business, entries are now open for The Telegraph Festival of Business SME award competition in association with Amazon.

“The Telegraph Festival of Business will once again celebrate the brightest and the best in Britain’s SME community. Our SME award has consistently recognised fast growing small businesses with a strong presence in their chosen sector. I am sure that this year’s entries – and eventual winner – will be no different.” – James Quinn, Group Business Editor, The Telegraph

The judging panel will consist of Daily Telegraph editors, independent speakers, and a representative from the award sponsor, Amazon, will use to reach their verdict.

They will consider the financial acumen with which companies are run, their branding, creativity and innovation, and vision.

Entries for the SME Award competition closes at midnight on Friday, September 22, 2017.
