VOTING NOW OPEN

THE INDEPENDENT AWARDS 2022

Voting is now officially OPEN for the Independent Awards 2022. That means you get to look at all the Nominees for each of the six categories and can vote for your favourite small business in each one. Once you’ve chosen, simply cast your vote, but please note, you’ll need to verify your email address once for your vote/s to count. Make sure you look out for the confirmation email we send you in your inbox (or junk folder!). Who will you choose to win a slice of this year’s £100,000 prize pot? You could help change someone’s life. 

Thanks again to our sponsors Dell Technologies, Royal Mail and Adobe Express for making these Awards possible.

AND THERE'S MORE...

The People's Choice Award

This award will be chosen by the people, so means the world. It can’t be entered directly but the Nominee who gets the most public votes wins, so every vote really does count. Whether it’s for their brand, products or impeccable service, the people’s favourite will be awarded £10,000.
