The event, run by Fife Chamber of Commerce, was re-designed this year to encourage entries from a much wider range of businesses – and there are many first-time entrants one step closer to winning an award.

Alan Mitchell, Chamber chief executive, said: “Judging this year’s applications was tough because we had a record number of entrants and they were of such a uniformly high quality.

“It was an absolute pleasure to read them all and soak up all that passion and the desire to get better and make a difference that all of these businesses and organisations so clearly have.

“They should be proud of what they are achieving, and Fife should be very proud of them.”
