If you’re a trader in Hammersmith & Fulham there’s still time to celebrate your good work by entering our Brilliant Business Awards.

Every year Hammersmith & Fulham Council’s 2016 Brilliant Business Awards shine a light on the borough’s best businesses. Winners are chosen by an expert panel of judges, as well as a public vote.

“We’re really lucky to have so many fantastic businesses in the borough,” said Cllr Andrew Jones, H&F Cabinet member for Economic Development and Regeneration.

“This is your chance to get well-deserved recognition for your business or for customers to reward those which help make our borough unique.”

How to take part...

Nominate yourself for a Judges’ Prize from our expert panel.

Categories include best customer service, new business, small business, charity, local employer, place to eat or drink and independent retailer. There are also prizes for best creative, technology, health/beauty, design/interiors and arts business.

Closing date for business self-nominations is Friday 28 October.

How taking part will benefit your business...

Businesses taking part have been delighted with the myriad of ways taking part has helped their business.

They include:

  • A great chance to network and share ideas with other businesses and customers on social media by getting involved with HamFulBrill4Biz on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn.
  • A chance to raise your profile and gather some great customer feedback, helping you stand out in a competitive marketplace.
  • Free advertising for your business: send Mark at hfbrill4biz@gmail.com text/images/links to post on the awards’ social media pages where you can publicise your good work and give offers and discounts.

You can also encourage your customers to vote for you...

Customers can nominate their favourite business in three categories: Best Fulham Business, Best Hammersmith Business and Best Shepherds Bush Business. Each nomination counts as a vote - the businesses that get the most win.

Closing date for public nominations is Sunday 6 November and everyone who makes a nomination will be automatically entered into a prize draw.

“It’s really good to see the council is promoting local businesses...”

Some of the many nominated by the public or who have put themselves forward for the judges’ prize say they’re delighted with the recognition the awards provide.

We’re really pleased because we’ve been here over 30 years, we’re part of the community,” said Raj Sethi, partner at Efficient Stationers in King Street, Hammersmith, who has several nominations from happy customers.

“It’s really good to see the council is promoting and supporting businesses, it’s really important, it’s good for the area. And hearing customers say they have voted for you is really nice.”

Awards evening

The winners will be announced at a gala awards evening on Thursday 17 November at Hammersmith Town Hall. See here for tickets or sponsorship opportunities.
