The BIBAs has held its annual Boot Camp workshop to support businesses looking to enter the awards.
The session was held attended by representatives of firms from across Lancashire at the Marriott Hotel, Preston, last week.
Those attending were given advice from judges which will select the winners of the 20 prize categories on how to succeed in their applications and interviews.
The deadline for entries is Friday, March 27 and all applicants which make it through to the first round of judging will be informed by May 1.
All interviews will take place at the North & Western Lancashire Chamber of Commerce’s offices in Blackpool from May 11 when the Manufacturer of the Year and Exporter of the Year categories are judged.
