BUSINESSES in Fife are running out of time to submit their applications for the Fife Business Awards 2012.

All entries must be submitted by 5.00 p.m. tomorrow (Friday).

The awards are organised by the Fife Chamber of Commerce, and chief executive Alan Russell is urging businesses to make the most of this last chance to get their applications in.

Opportunity

Mr Russell said: “It’s a great opportunity to let people know what your business is about and how well you are performing.

“Some people don’t want to fly the flag for their business, but why not? If you’ve done reasonably well then you might find you’ve done better than some of the others going in for the awards too.

“No business is too big or too small to enter. Your business might not trade locally, but that’s where your employees come from, so it’s important to get a positive message out there.

“While we’ve had a good entry so far, a number of businesses have told us they are going to enter but haven’t done so yet. We’d urge them not to leave it too late.”

Businesses are invited to submit applications to one or more of the award categories, the range of which has been designed to be accessible to all businesses in the Fife area.

Free

The Awards are open to members of Fife Chamber and all businesses operating within the Fife area, and entry is free. For details of how to enter and to download entry forms, visit the website www.fifechamber.co.uk.

The winners of the Business Awards will be announced at a glittering ceremony on Thursday, November 15 at Rothes Halls, Glenrothes, hosted by comedian and radio presenter Fred McAulay.
