Upcoming award deadlines (in the next two months)

MD & Founder, Boost Awards

Award deadlines coming up (scroll down below text for a list of awards organised by industry) 

Happy New Year from all the team here at Boost Awards – as you will see, there are plenty of credible awards open to start 2022 on an award-winning high. 

As ever, contact our team here at Boost if you need help with your entries or guidance on which awards to enter. It is the perfect time to get a date in your diary to begin planning which awards to enter in 2022 – our amazing new digital planning sessions are a great way to get teams together from across your organisation to identify which are your strongest stories. We can then match them to awards that would provide most benefit to you. Okay, let’s get started with the awards to look out for…

General business awards

You don’t have long to enter a new whole business scheme that we are very excited about – The Business Champion Awards (15th January). This new award scheme, in association with Reuters, is aiming to become the UK’s leading business awards – with a prestigious event held in March 2022, it’s a great way of maximising 9 months worth of publicity as 2022 winners – we have written a guide to entering. Other UK business awards schemes coming up include The Management Today Business Awards (26th January) which recognises companies of all sizes from dynamic start-ups to Britain’s biggest firms, or if you are at the smaller-sized end of the spectrum, The FSB Celebrating Small Business Awards, which runs a series of regional editions with deadlines through January and February, culminating in a national event later in the year. For more details read our Guide to General Business Awards.        

Employer awards, HR awards and D&I awards

For a more comprehensive overview, please read our guides to ‘Great Employer Schemes‘, ‘Which are the best HR Awards to enter?’ and ‘Diversity and inclusion awards‘.

In terms of D&I, The Stonewall Global Workplace Equality Index is now open until 22nd March – so you may find our Guide to The Stonewall Workplace Equality Index helpful or contact us to see how we can help manage your entry as they are daunting in their size and complexity so you will need to start now.

In the world of employee benefits, we are delighted to see The Employee Benefits Awards (14th January) is open, this time with 22 categories to enter – be quick though, that deadline is just days away. 

One of the most prestigious awards in the calendar is now open until the end of March – The Princess Royal Training Awards. These recognise the best training initiatives in UK companies of all sizes, they are free to enter and result in royal recognition – read our guide to entering in 2022 for everything you need to know about applying for these excellent awards. 

These days it is increasingly important to be able to show that you are a top employer and there are a number of very credible schemes coming up that do just that, but bear in mind they can be highly competitive, so you will need strong evidence to support your claims. The UK Company Culture Awards (4th February) recognises that people are at the heart of every business, as does the similarly well-named UK Employee Experience Awards (25th February) which features a second stage presentation as part of its entry process.        

Customer contact awards

If you are looking for awards with a call centre-focus, there is a UK scheme that is very well-established, and recognises an industry sector that has had to completely change, adapt and innovate in the face of the pandemic – UK National Contact Centre Awards (25th February). For an equivalent but international programme, there is ContactCenterWorld Top Ranking Performers Awards (20th January).  For something a bit more general in scope and open to global entry, consider The Stevie Awards for Sales and Customer Service (12th January) which features a whopping 250 categories. Further afield, do also consider the European Customer Experience Awards (4th March) and The US Customer Experience Awards (25th March). The latter of these is a new scheme, the first of its kind in the US, so we have produced a comprehensive guide to entering in 2022.      

Marketing and PR awards

Some credible marketing and creative awards that should be on your radar include The AVA Digital Awards, honouring excellence in digital creativity, branding and strategy (20th January). This new year sees a whole raft of credible, established awards, such as Campaign Media Awards (20th January), PRWeek Global Awards (27th January), SABRE Awards EMEA (31st January), The Drum Awards for Search (3rd February), UK Paid Media Awards (4th February) and The Drum Awards for Digital Advertising (16th February).  

Financial services awards

Finally, a mention to an interesting UK-only scheme by a market intelligence platform called FinTech Intel – The UK FinTech Awards – open until the 28th January deadline, and this year featuring 25 categories, including those for Product/Service, Initiative, Organisation and Talent.     

Hopefully these highlights will have provided some insights to help you plan which awards to enter. Below you will find all the awards with deadlines occurring within the next two months, organised by industry sector. Remember, do please contact Boost if you need a helping hand entering any of these – our in-house team of experienced award writers have won over 1,500 awards, and can increase your chances of a win significantly. Now is the best time to get a planning session arranged so you can develop your awards strategy for 2022. 

You can also sign up for our email deadline reminder service, so that the next two months of deadlines arrive in your inbox – completely free of charge. Handy, I think you will agree!
