Following the success of the 2012 Brilliant Business Awards, Hammersmith and Fulham Council is launching the 2013 awards on Friday September 6, with the closing date for nominations on Monday October 21. 

The prestigious awards ceremony takes place on Thursday November 7 at Bush Hall in Shepherd's Bush.

Like last year the council will be asking residents, shoppers and workers to go online and nominate the best local businesses in a borough-wide competition.

Any business can be nominated from a bank to a barbers or a boutique to a bar.

As well as the prestige and publicity from winning an award in any one of five categories and the presentation of an awards trophy, businesses could also win a fantastic prize to the value of £500.

There are 10 nomination categories:

  • Favourite business
  • Best customer service
  • Best new business
  • Best business supporter of the community
  • Best business entrepreneur
  • Best creative business
  • Best food business
  • Best Fulham business
  • Best Hammersmith business
  • Best Shepherds Bush business 

We'll bring you full details of all these categories by next Friday's launch date.

If you run a business in our borough, encourage your customers to vote for you to win.

And if you reckon you are a brilliant business why not tell the world? Promote the awards to your customers, in store, on line, via your database and social networks and ask them to vote for you. The more proactive you are, the greater the opportunity to outshine your competitors.

The H&F Brilliant business awards is promoted through H&F, local community and business media, business networks and businesses data bases. Voters are encouraged to nominate with the opportunity to win a Prize Draw and some fantastic prizes donated by local businesses.

If you are interested in making a contribution to the Prize Draw the organisers would be delighted to hear from you. A bottle of wine, lunch, an item from your shop, a free service from a hair cut to a  dry cleaning voucher will help us promote the awards. All prize contributors will be acknowledged on the business awards web pages.

Last year, 43 businesses, ranging from dance studios to dog groomers and from computer specialists to our local credit untion were shortlisted for the awards. You will find a list of last year's winners here.
