How to apply:
Businesses are asked to apply direct. To apply for the 2020 SVBAs, simply navigate to the individual awards pages and fill in the online application form.
You are able to apply for multiple categories by filling in a single application, just make sure to tick the appropriate check boxes.
The online forms are designed to be simple to complete, and at the initial stage we’re looking for short, sharp, attention grabbing introductions to your business. Selected applicants will be asked to provide a second stage application, that will take place as a face to face interview with members of the judging team.
