The 2020 Hunts Post Business Awards has launched a new award category for this year to recognise the huge challenges and successes for many companies during the coronavirus pandemic.
Due to the unprecedented trading environment faced by businesses in the last few months, we have introduced a special category that will allow companies to share their accomplishments.
We want to hear from businesses who have either adapted their own business model or supported the community through the uncertainty of a worldwide pandemic.
Whether you’re a manufacturer who has been making PPE; a catering firm who has been providing lunches for frontline workers or even if you have found your company has been able to reduce local unemployment levels by hiring more staff during this time of crisis, we would love to hear your stories and experiences.
If you want to enter, think about the following:
n How has your business reacted to Covid-19?
n What is the story behind your success and how did you achieve what you did?
- 1 Obsessive stalker jailed for posting explicit photographs of his former partner
- 2 Product sold at Tesco recalled due to risk of disease-causing bacteria

Hunts Post editor, Debbie Davies, said: “We know lots of businesses out there have struggled and many are still facing difficult times and uncertainty, but we want to celebrate the success stories.
“It would be great to hear from businesses who have adapted their factories and work spaces to support the frontline.
“There are also lots of companies who have managed to continued trading and we would love to hear how they managed to do that.
