How to Enter the

Our district is home to world-leading industry pioneers, talented youngsters and businesses who use their success to improve their community.

Arun Business Partnership Business of the Year Awards provide a fantastic opportunity for the local business community to come together and celebrate the massive contribution it makes to the Arun District.

Our Awards recognise “the Best of the Best” and are open to anyone who runs a business in the Arun District – from sole traders to multi-national global brands.

We believe success is not just measured by turnover and profit – it’s about how a business sets itself apart from the competition and always goes the extra mile for its customers or its community and the people who live there.

Entering the ABP Business of the Year Awards is simple and FREE! The only requirement is that businesses must have an address in Arun District to enter the awards.
