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.”
