It’s that time again when we begin the hunt for the very best businesses at the Eastern Daily Press Business Awards. Entries are open now and we're inviting the best Norfolk firms to get involved.

This year, the theme of the awards is sustainability, and the companies that best showcase their commitment to serving and enhancing the communities they operate in will be recognised at our celebration awards evening on November 28 at the Norfolk Showground.

We’ve got 10 categories open for entries this year. You can find a full list of them below.

Thank you once again to our headline sponsor Barclays Corporate Banking and our category sponsors – without them, the awards simply couldn’t go ahead.

Now it’s over to you to get your entries in and let us know why your business deserves to be standing on stage at the awards evening.

Entries to the Eastern Daily Press Business Awards can be made online at, where you can also find the criteria for each category.

The deadline for entries is Sunday, July 28.
