I’m always happy to share information about awards programs that actually offer winners something of value. So many business and web-related awards don’t do much for winners, but they do make a lot of money for the company behind the awards through entry fees and awards ceremony tickets.
Today, I heard that the prestigious Lloyds TSB Enterprise Award, which honors the best startup and best enterprise in Britain, is open for entries.
Winners receive cash prizes of up to £50,000, free mentoring support, coverage in the Sunday Telegraph, ongoing networking opportunities, promotional opportunities, and more. Even “initial heat” winners receive £5,000 cash prizes.
The entry deadline is January 31, 2013. You can get all of the details in the video below (sponsored by Lloyds TSB) and enter on the Lloyds TSB Enterprise Awards website.
