With the deadline approaching at the end of the month, companies now have less than four weeks to enter the Harrogate Advertiser Series Business Awards.

The awards, now in their eleventh year, recognise and celebrate some of the region’s best and brightest business stars.

They are open to businesses trading from the circulation areas of the Harrogate Advertiser series of newspapers, an area of more than 500 square miles that stretches from Northallerton in the north to South Milford in the south, and from the top end of Nidderdale in the west almost to York in the east.

There are 13 categories, ranging from Employer of the Year to Lifetime Achievement Award, and businesses and individuals may enter in as many as they like.

Several business have already entered, but there are plenty of categories yet to receive their first nominations, so new entrants may benefit from a narrow field.
