The Online Business Awards celebrate UK businesses that serve their customers through the great website experiences they provide and the business performance they can claim as a result of their online activities.

Entering the Online Business Awards, being judged by experts, being commended or winning, will bring real benefits to each entering company in the form of valuable PR, further enhancing their standing in a competitive market.

The list of 16 Categories is not overburdened with wordy criteria. We believe in not being too prescriptive, preferring you to tell your story in your own way. All we ask is that you use the basic template of headings in your submission document. These vary from category group to category group, so please read through them in advance.The template helps the judges when comparing entries and it helps the process of marking, ensuring allocations of marks to each aspect of a submission are awarded with consistency. But if you have any questions please drop an email to: Helen Warrilow.

We look forward to receiving your entries and wish you well with your submissions.

Key dates:

May 1: Website active/Call for entries commences

January 10: Deadline for announcement of short-listed Finalists
