Terms and Conditions – The BIBAs

Entering the BIBAs couldn’t be simpler.  Just complete the application form(s), entering as many categories as you wish.  Do check the criteria for each award before entering.

What are the BIBAs?

Our strap-line says it all “it’s the one they all want to win”. It’s a programme that recognises and rewards outstanding achievement. The BIBAs are open to all and we welcome applications from all business and sectors, regardless of size and industry. The process is unlike any other awards ceremony regionally, in that BIBA candidates really are judged rigorously, meaning you can be confident that, as a winner, you truly deserve it.

How do I enter?

To enter, you will need to complete an entry form(s) and submit where it states  answers to  the criteria for the category you are entering.  The criteria can be found on the entry form(s)

What do I need to include in my entry?

Each entry must be accompanied by a completed online entry form.
You can apply for as many categories as you wish (providing you meet the set criteria for each category).  In the event of multiple entries please ensure that the relevant category sections are complete in full.  Remember the judges will need documentary evidence – the facts and figures to back up your claim; so do include them on all applications. Be honest, be factual and include anything you think will strengthen your application…be mindful of the 2000 word limit, per application/category.

Will entries be treated confidentially?

Absolutely!  All entries and information submitted to the BIBAs are treated in the strictest of confidence. Financial information is only seen by the judging panel and confidentially disposed of immediately following the competition.

Will I only be considered for the categories I enter?
