Nominations are now open for the 2023 Tendring4Growth Business Awards.
There are seven categories in the Tendring District Council-run (TDC) awards, which locally-based firms can be entered for.
Nominations will close on Sunday, 4 June, after which they will be shortlisted by a judging panel.
Enterprise and business support agency Colbea is the headline sponsor of this year’s awards, with the ceremony taking place at the Princes Theatre in the Autumn, to coincide with Tendring4Growth Business Fortnight.
Mike Carran, TDC Assistant Director for Economic Growth and Leisure, urged people to nominate businesses they thought worthy of awards.
“We held the inaugural awards last year and they were a huge success, celebrating the best of Tendring business,” Mr Carran said.
“There are so many excellent businesses out there, which is why we have brought the Tendring4Growth Business Awards back for 2023 – but we need your help in putting forward these firms for recognition.
“So please make sure you put your nominations in – whether you’re a business owner, employee or loyal customer – so that we celebrate even more great firms in Tendring.”

• Women in Business – sponsored by Red Nova
• Digital & Technology – sponsored by Rose Builders
• Tourism – sponsored by Clacton Pier
