Business Awards 

Who are we?

Recognising Brilliance, Rewarding Excellence

We specialise in promoting and celebrating local business communities in the Dorset and surrounding areas. Our primary focus is on organising local business awards, an initiative that highlights and rewards the achievements of  businesses within the region. These awards serve not only as a recognition of entrepreneurial excellence but also as a platform for networking and community engagement. By spotlighting the success stories of local enterprises, Marketing West plays a crucial role in supporting and encouraging the growth and development of SME's in Dorset, contributing to the vibrant local economy.

Our Judging Process

The awards are judged by a group of independent judges. The process is entirely online and the judges do not know who the other judges are. They receive a brief and a copy of the entries and recommendations plus a voting spreadsheet. They vote in each category for their first choice, second and so on. They return the spreadsheet which is fed into the master sheet which tells us who are the winners.
