The Cornwall Business Awards are proud to announce a new partnership with Pirate FM, ahead of the fourteenth annual ceremony next year.

The Awards are a celebration of innovation, achievement and entrepreneurial spirit within the Cornish business community, organised by The Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Growth and Skills Hub on behalf of the Cornwall Development Company.

The glittering event shines a spotlight on the amazing people who help drive the Cornish economy and make it one of the best places in the country to do business.

Pirate FM has now been confirmed as media partner, ahead of entries opening on the 7th January 2019.

The station will be offering a £10,000 marketing campaign to one of the lucky shortlisted businesses, including digital, video, social and on-air advertising. It will be awarded to the business that, in the judges’ view, could benefit most from such a substantial marketing package on Pirate FM’s platforms.

“Pirate FM has built its reputation on helping businesses across Cornwall to develop, grow and celebrate success. We’re extremely pleased to be media partners of the 2019 Cornwall Business Awards and look forward to seeing the huge amount of talent that the Duchy’s business community has to offer.”

Now in their 14th year, the awards are organised and delivered by the Cornwall & Isles of Scilly Growth and Skills Hub which provides an independent and impartial service to help businesses grow through specialist support and training.

“For 2019, we are keen to open up the awards to a whole new audience and we hope the partnership with Pirate will be really successful in encouraging people to apply for an award for the first time, and help us find those hidden business gems from across the region,” comments Kirsty Miles-Musgrave, Communications Manager for the Growth & Skills Hub.

The Cornwall Business Awards are free to enter and open to any business with its head office or main business premises in Cornwall or the Isles of Scilly.

Companies have from 7th January until 31st March to enter a range of categories, including: Best Customer Service, Business Leader of the Year, Best Place to Work and Product of the Year.
