All entries and information submitted to the Annual Business Awards are treated in the strictest of confidence and viewed only by the shortlisting committee and judges. There is no fee to enter, so why not take a little time to celebrate your achievements this year?
Entries open on 21 April 2021 and close on 26 July 2021. Shortlisting and the announcement of finalists will take place in August, with the final judging following in September. The Gala Awards Ceremony and winners publicity will take place in October 2021.
Will the Gala Awards Ceremony be virtual this year?
We hope to welcome guests in some version of a physical event in October 2021, however with Covid restrictions on events under continuous review in Singapore, a decision will be taken and communicated closer to the event date.
Who judges the awards?
An expert group of judges will review each of the finalist entries per category. In recent years, our judges have included the Executive Vice President of International Operations for Singapore’s Economic Development Board (EDB), the Assistant CEO of the Singapore Business Federation, the Country Director for the Department for International Trade, the British High Commissioner to Singapore, and C-suite professionals from within the business community. The judging panel for the 22nd Annual Business Awards will be announced in due course.
