Free to enter

The H&F Brill Bizz awards, which are the highlight of the business year in H&F, are simple and free to enter.

We’ve added some exciting new categories, including Best Tech Start-up and Best Creative Start-up, which coincides with the council’s new partnership with Imperial College London - Upstream - to make H&F a leading destination for the biotech, digital and creative industries.

Nominate yourself to be considered for, up to two categories, in the judges’ prize contest.

The closing date is Thursday 4 October.

“This is a great way to celebrate our diverse and successful mix of businesses which are the backbone to our thriving local economy,” said Cllr Andrew Jones, H&F Cabinet Member for the Economy and the Arts. “We’re always looking at ways to help our local traders and business owners as we aim to be the best place to do business in Europe.”

The awards form part of the council’s Industrial Strategy with Imperial to make the borough the best place to live, work and play in Europe.

This is the seventh year of the awards which continue to grow in popularity with the number of entries increasing year after year.
