The FSB and Streamline have launched a new UKwide business awards programme to promote and 
celebrate innovation and success in small businesses across the UK. 

The FSB Streamline UK Business Awards will run across 12 geographical areas around the UK, with area finalists selected to go through to a national final in April 2013. 

The Yorkshire awards are now open for applicants and businesses across the region are being invited to 
nominate themselves in four categories:
 Business Innovation
 Online Business of the Year
 Micro Business of the Year
 Young Entrepreneur of the Year

Four businesses (one for each category) from the North East and Yorkshire will be selected by a panel of independent judges to go through to the national final. One of the four finalists will also be selected as winner and receive a cash prize of £500.

The North East and Yorkshire winner, along with the three remaining category finalists, will automatically be entered into the national final for their category, with £4,500 up for grabs for each national category winner. 

The judges will then select one overall business as winner of the FSB Streamline UK Business of the Year Award. The winner of this award will receive an additional £5,000, and a business consultancy package worth a further £5,000 to help them to grow their business. 

Further details are available from the FSB Streamline UK Business Awards website.
