The closing date for applications is the 7th August 2009 The shortlist for nominees will be announced on the 10th August 2009 An independent judging panel will then convene, to decide upon the winners! I urge everybody who is keen to apply to do so as soon as possible. Last year we had a number of applications that missed the deadline by a few days. The prizes for the awards includes:

1. Each nominee will receive a certificate of the evening and nominees status.

2. Each category winner will receive a commemorative bottle of wine & certificate of the evening and nominees status.

3. The winner of each category will also receive one pay as you go marketing package from WS Marketing.

4. The South Wales Business of the year will receive £1,000 of WS Marketing support and a half page advertising space in Cardiff Life magazine.

Please note, a business can nominate its self. Last year, a few people were unsure if they could do so on their own behalf and unfortunately missed out. Cardiff Life will be providing the media coverage of the event.
