It's a big honour to be finalists for not just one award but two:
- Best Small Family Business
- Fastest Growing Family Business
Both of these awards are part of the Midlands' Family Business Awards, a charitable organisation run by The Wilson Organisation since 2010. The finalists have been short-listed based on business performance and how the family values and family members have guided the development of the business, amongst other criteria. Entries are accepted from throughout Leicestershire, Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, Rutland, Lincolnshire, Birmingham, West Midlands, Warwickshire, Shropshire, Staffordshire, Worcestershire, Herefordshire and Northamptonshire.
As part of this we have also been entered into a new award for 2016 - the People's Choice Award.
This award seeks to engage the wider community with the values and success of family businesses in the area. As part of this aim, there is no panel of judges but a voting process, which anyone can vote in. All you have to do is to go to the Family Business Awards website and vote for your local family business by registering your email address when voting opens on October 3rd 2016.
Distinction is a digital agency that brothers James and Greg Bloor founded in 2001, when the face of the Internet was completely different. We have a truly integrated approach to projects and always aim to create outcomes, not outputs in order to give our clients the benefits of design, development and strategy. Our proven record for success is just one of the reasons that we have been fortunate enough to be shortlisted for these awards.
Voting closes October 31st and the winner will be announced at the awards ceremony in Birmingham on Thursday 17th November 2016.
