We are excited to announce that the Fife Business Awards will be open for entries soon.
Details of the categories, criteria and sponsors will be published in the next few weeks.
Looking back at the last Awards night held at the Rothes Halls, the 2017 ceremony was a fantastic celebration of the success, diversity and innovation that can be found throughout the Fife business community.
The awards were hosted by popular TV and radio presenter Grant Stott and guests enjoyed entertainment from performer Edward Reid, who was a Britain’s Got Talent semi-finalist in 2011.

On winning their award for Most Enterprising Start-up Business Sharon Menzies of Influx Recruitment said "We were ecstatic. I can honestly say it was THE best experience ever. This was our very first award and was very special."
Lorna Jaffray from Realm Construction winners of the DYW Award said "I think our employees feel that their hard work has been recognised - they do a fantastic job training and mentoring our apprentices and this award is a credit to them. As a business - it's great for us to highlight that our training & development strategy is successful and has resulted in this award."
Rebecca Taylor of Kingdom Maintenance winners of the Best Performing (under 50) Award said "We had only been trading for little over 6 years and to win and have our hard work and success recognised left us bursting with pride but also gave us a new boost of motivation to continue the journey. I also believe it was great for team morale as everyone within the team played a key role in us being able to achieve what we have and this was a thank you to everyone for their hard work. Especially as we knew the competition was tough and everyone shortlisted very worthy winners."
When asked if they would recommend entering to other businesses Rebecca added "Yes I would definitely encourage businesses to enter. I think business can gain a lot from the experience even completing the application made us stop and reflect on the previous 6 years up to that point.
It gave us the opportunity to meet other like-minded people in the area and network with businesses that we would not usually come across."
