The Highland Business Awards are renowned for celebrating the achievements of businesses throughout the region with organisations large and small, new and well established, and across all sectors, recognised for their success.

The current business environment may be rather different, yet despite the challenges, Highland businesses continue to live up to their reputation for being flexible and adaptable and are seizing the opportunities that exist.

So this year, we are acknowledging those efforts at the Highland Business Awards with a new set of Award categories for both organisations and individuals and a straightforward nomination process.

Nominate now and you could be a winner!  Nominations are open until 5.00pm on Friday 29 October 2021.
