Manufacturers have been at the forefront of the response effort to Covid-19, and we have been inspired by your innovation, resilience, and transformation during this time. 

With so many competing priorities it can be hard to know where to focus your efforts. Our awards application is free, and simple to complete, but that’s not why you should enter. Here are a few benefits to your company:

1. Great PR opportunity

Awards are an excellent marketing tool, and a free way to generate positive news stories for your business. 

 2. Attract new customers 

Being shortlisted or winning an award can be a sign of quality for potential new customers which can drive sales. 

3. Benchmarking

Awards are a great way to show that you are a leader within the sector, and have been commended for your innovation, strategic thinking, or resilience.

4. Motivating your teams

Winning an award can help boost morale and make employees feel valued for their hard work, and proud to be part of an award winning company. 

5. Attract and retain talent

Advertising that you were shortlisted for or won an award is a great way to attract the brightest and best new talent. 

A few of our previous winners have shared what winning an award meant to them. 

We’re very proud of our success at the Make UK Awards 2019. Universal Wolf is a company with big ambitions, and to walk away with the national award for Business Growth and Strategy has confirmed to us that we’re doing the right thing by our brand and our customers. The national SME of the Year award was unexpected, but much-appreciated acknowledgement of the hard work of our wolf pack!
Craig Brown Business Development Director, Universal Wolf

The fashion firm has always put social and environmental responsibility at the heart of business, so being recognised in these categories was a real triumph for the family business. Winning these awards is testament to the hard work of our whole team, we would like to thank Make UK for putting sustainability at the heart of British manufacturing and look forward to a new dawn of sustainable, British made goods with environmental and social responsibility on the national agenda.
