Red Rose Awards reveals final shortlist

By Kerry

29 Jan 2018

The final shortlist for this year’s Lancashire Business View Red Rose Awards has been announced, confirming the business hopefuls in with a chance of collecting a prestigious trophy in front of a 1,100-strong audience.

Organisations of all sizes from every corner of the county across a wide variety of industries are represented on the final list of 150, who will now vie for success in 25 categories.

The shortlist was finalised following a full day of pre-scoring by 80 Red Rose Awards judges, who combed through and debated hundreds of nominations at a special event with judging partners UCLan, and hosted by Northcote at the Rovers.

Richard Slater, publisher of Lancashire Business View and founder of the Red Rose Awards, explained that the Big Bang theme of this year’s event reflected Lancashire’s ability to make an impact on a national and international stage.

“We have seen some phenomenal entries for this year’s awards and the final shortlist is incredibly strong, loaded with talent, creativity, hard-work and drive to succeed.

Dr John Lonsdale, director of innovation and enterprise at UCLan, judging partner for Red Rose Awards 2018, said: “This year’s Red Rose entries have been exceptionally strong. The judges have yet again been impressed and delighted by the innovation, entrepreneurship and business excellence we have seen. Choosing the finalists has not been easy.

Oliver Burton, CEO at Forbes Solicitors, headline sponsors of the awards for the eighth year, said:

“After the hard task of deciding on the finalists, we’re looking forward to meeting them on the interview days to hear more about their success in Lancashire and beyond.”

“We are looking forward to meeting them, and celebrating their success on the night of the Awards.” A full list of finalists can be seen below and at redroseawards.co.uk
