Entries are now open for Solent 250 businesses to nominate themselves for an award and showcase their achievements over what has been a difficult period.

To qualify, businesses must have appeared on the Solent 250 listing 2021.

The five award categories are:

  • Entrepreneurial business of the yearreacting quickly, decisively and flexibly in a year when the rule book was torn up
  • Climate and sustainability awardleading the way on sustainability and implementing environmental initiatives to reduce carbon footprint
  • Growth and resilience awardmaking the most of the opportunities, adapting to maximise potential and growing market share
  • Business culture awardplacing culture at the core of the business and making it part of the brand to drive resilience, especially during the pandemic
  • International company of the year awardexhibiting exceptional international performance in the last 12 months

You can enter more than one category. The closing date for entries is Friday 10 September.


For the judging, the Solent 250 sponsors will meet with nominees, hopefully face to face, but virtually if required, to interview each business against a set of criteria. As well as self-nominations, the sponsors will also be selecting companies for the shortlist for each award.

The finalists will be announced on Tuesday 28 September and the winners will be revealed in November, hopefully at an awards dinner. Further details will be announced nearer the time.
