A FINAL call is being made to firms across the area for this year’s Observer and Gazette Business Awards.

The deadline to place your nomination is Saturday, so don’t miss out on the chance to see either your own company shine or show your support for enterprising efforts during the past year.

With our biggest-ever tally of 19 categories for our 2012 awards, we have already seen a wide range of responses from businesses keen to promote their success amid testing times.

But we are eager to attract as diverse a mix of companies as possible to have the chance to be put forward for an accolade.

With awards up for grabs in everything from start-up firm of the year, medium business of the year, through to the lifetime achievement category, it is set to be another memorable event.

So if you are involved with a business across Chichester, Midhurst, Bognor Regis and Littlehampton, don’t be shy in putting your companies forward.

This year’s awards will be capped off by a glitzy black-tie evening at the end of next month compered once again by ITV’s Fred Dinenage at the Hilton Avisford Park on Friday, March 30. As past winners have told us, gaining an award has had a significant impact for companies in terms of their marketing and the prestige that comes with claiming an independently-judged award.

Make your nominations online at www.josouthevents.co.uk to see all 19 categories or email jeanette.hockley@chiobserver.co.uk with your nominations- either for your own firm or other worthy candidates across our area.
