What are the 2019 Small Business Awards?

The 2019 Small Business Awards will once again strive to recognise the outstanding achievements, dedication and hard work of those running a small business or organisation. The awards are inclusive of small businesses from around the globe and from a vast and diverse range of business sectors.


Who can be nominated?

Smaller businesses from all around the globe are welcome to take part in our prestigious awards! These can be business owners coordinating across a team of dedicated staff, working independently or running their business from their homes!

All candidates nominated for the program have either been put forward by CV-Magazine themselves in a publisher cast nomination, or via a third party on our online voting form. Self-nominations are also accepted.

In the case of a third-party nomination we do not ask the individual filling in the voting form to disclose their details. Tried and tested over the years, we have found that response rates shoot up when the process remains anonymous. Because of this, we do not use the total number of votes as a factor to determine the winners’ and our final conclusions are made solely on a merit basis. We prefer to offer everyone a level playing field.


What happens once I accept my nomination?

Once you have accepted your nomination you will be moved onto our prestigious awards shortlist. As a shortlisting party, you will then be encouraged to submit supporting materials via our optional questionaire. This is the perfect opportunity to talk about what you do as a business and to highlight any projects, products or services that you would like our judging panel to take into consideration!

As it is non-mandatory to submit additional information our in -house research team remain on hand to put together this on behalf of our nominees- if required. To do this our research team will use anything that is available online and in the public domain. This can include: press releases, client/customer testimonials, social media and of course, your company website.


Who makes the final decision?

The 2019 Small Business Awards are judged by our highly-experienced panel which consists of an international, multi-lingual collective of individuals, with backgrounds from a myriad of fields including; business, media, journalism, history and European Languages.

Furthermore, our panel is led by a veteran academic leader with international pedagogic and coaching experience who is well versed in research, fact-checking and mediation. This allows our panel to operate with efficacy and dependability.


Is this free to join?

In short- Yes.

As is the case with all of our awards, there are no costs involved in accepting a nomination, nor if you go on to be successful. That being said, we have a highly experienced editorial department who will be producing the annual winners’ magazine, inclusion in which is optional.

Despite this offering all winners, as part of our group’s philosophy are entitled to receive complimentary celebration items. This is so that regardless of budget, or company policy, the award and our seal of approval can be strategically maximised and translated into exposure for your business!
