The British Bangladeshi Business Awards aim to discover inspirational role models so being selected as a finalist, or in fact winning an award will attract attention and support from the business industry and press. It will recognise the nominee as an inspirational role model who can inspire others to do well and be successful.

Tips on successful nominations

One way of getting noticed by British Bangladeshi Business Awards is a really good, well completed nomination form. Make sure you take your time over your nomination, so that you tell us absolutely everything that displays the nominee’s brilliance and double check that all the contact details are correct.

  • Keep within the word limits! Nominations that include answers that are below the word limit are very unlikely to be considered and nominations that exceed the word limit will be marked down by the judges – so it is very important to pay attention to the word limits.
  • Give us enough detail so we can fully grasp the nominee’s achievements.
  • Stick to the point and avoid unnecessary information.
  • This is your opportunity to really sell the nominee – why does the nominee deserve to win an award? How has the nominee inspired others through their work activity?
