The Glasgow Business Awards, hosted by Glasgow Chamber of Commerce, is returning for its 24th year with a black-tie ceremony later this year.

With Royal Bank of Scotland as main sponsor, and The Herald as media partner, the awards will once again shine a light on the successes of the city’s business community from the past 12 months.

Entries are now open for the 13 competitive categories which will champion various business characteristics from innovation, communications and international trade to community wealth and sustainability.

Alongside the individual categories, what will be the most prestigious accolade on the night on Thursday 6 October, Royal Bank of Scotland’s Award for Most Outstanding Business, will be presented to one of the winners of the competitive categories.

Glasgow’s Favourite Business, sponsored by The Herald’s sister publication Glasgow Times and voted for by the public, will also return for 2022, alongside the Glasgow Chamber of Commerce Award for Lifetime Achievement.
