Sub36 Awards 2020

Lancashire Business View's Sub36 Awards 2020 will honour Lancashire's most influential, innovative and inspiring business people aged Sub36.

Sub36 is Lancashire Business View's campaign to showcase Lancashire's young business talent. We do this through the regular magazine feature, networking events and annual awards.

The 2020 awards are now closed for entries as of 28 August. See below for a full list of categories.

Sub36 is about recognising hard work, skill and ambition. It's about recognising the great workplaces that allow the younger generation to flourish.
It’s about making our people and our businesses stronger. It’s about local entrepreneurship. It’s about celebrating Lancashire. It’s about sharing successes widely – in print, online and at events. It’s about connecting the county.

And it's about providing a platform for young business leaders to learn, grow, develop and connect.

In addition to their trophy, Sub36 winners in 2020 will gain access to a bespoke personal and business mentoring programme plus access to sales and business development courses for you and your business.

Key dates:

  • Nomination deadline: 17 August
  • Entry deadline: 28 August
  • Finalists announced: 11 September
  • Judging day: 23 September (may take place remotely)
  • Awards: 22 October, planned for The Village Hotel, Blackpool.

We hope that both judging and the awards event will be able to take place as live events as planned. However we do have a plan B in place should we be unable to.

Judging may take place remotely with our judges and finalists. The interview format will not change and each finalist will get the same chance to present and answer judges’ questions.

And the awards ceremony may become a virtual event open for all to watch. The winners will still receive a trophy and their wins will be celebrated across all Lancashire Business View channels in print and online as usual.
