Our Awards rank in the most highly respected accolades for the entrepreneurial and business communities in Scotland.  The Awards are open to members & non-members of WeDO Scotland and are free to enter.  The application process is comprehensive, with the 2 finalists in each Award category interviewed face-to-face by our Judging Panels.  Award winners are selected on merit and bear no relevance to the number of tickets purchased nor sponsorship. 

Throughout the process, finalists benefit from extensive promotion to the Scottish business community and beyond.  Without exception, year on year, shortlisted applicants and Award winners report that they have gained outstanding exposure for both themselves and their businesses, as well as valuable advice & introductions from the Judges.

This year, in recognition of the substantial number of outstanding SME businesses in Scotland, we’re delighted to have added a new Award, the SME Business of the Year Award. In total, there are 8 Awards categories which anyone can be nominated for or you can apply directly. Please note that you can only nominate someone or apply for ONE award category.
