Newark Business Awards: The finalists are revealed





The waiting is over and we can finally reveal the finalists in the ten categories for the Newark Business Awards 2022.

Our independent judges have finished sifting through the dozens of entry packs submitted by the nominees and made their decisions.

“We had our highest ever number of entries this year, many of them high quality, so I know it has been a difficult decision for the judges ­— and their work has only just started,” said Advertiser editor Sharon Hodkin.

“They now have the even tougher task of narrowing down the finalists to the winners and highly-commended in each category. I know it won’t be easy.

“We would like to thank them for all their efforts so far and wish all our finalists the best of luck!”

Our judges will now visit each of the finalists over the next few weeks to chat to staff and managers to get a real taste of the business.

All our finalists will be invited to the black-tie gala dinner at the Lady Eastwood Centre, Newark Showground, on Friday, June 10, when the winners will be revealed.

Before then, they will all be filmed for a presentation to be shown before the winners are announced at the ceremony.

All our finalists will also be considered for the Judges’ Prestige Award, run for the first time this year in conjunction with our headline sponsors, Motorfinity.

All the finalists ­— regardless of if they are category winners ­— will be considered by our judges.
