Fife Business Awards 2018 – shortlists announced

30th November 2017

Shortlists for the eleven Fife Business Awards 2018 categories have been revealed.

Fife Chamber President Peter Southcott said:

“Fife is full of great businesses with fantastic success stories, and the shortlisted category nominees range from small start-ups and individual entrepreneurs to long-established companies – again demonstrating the sheer breadth of business success and ambition in Fife.

“I want to commend and thank all the organisations that took the time and effort to submit an application. Year on year, the quality of award applications from prospective local businesses continues to impress, and our judging panels always have a tough job selecting the shortlists for each category. This year was absolutely no exception.

“With such a strong field of nominees, we are all looking forward to the next stage of the judging process – where the shortlisted businesses will present to the independent judging panels – to identify each category winner.”

Winners will be announced at a glitzy awards ceremony to be held on Friday 23rd March at the Glen Pavilion in Dunfermline, with returning host Grant Stott reprising his role as master of ceremonies.
