The Midlands Family Business Awards are the UK's only independent not-for-profit awards for family businesses. 

Each year the Awards recognise and reward success across a range of 10 categories. Our 2017 finalists are currently attending their judging days with our independent panels and the Winners and Highly Commended in each category will be announced at the glittering Awards Ceremony & Dinner at the Derby Velodrome in November.

All our fantastic finalists are entered into our People's Choice category, sponsored by Streets Chartered Accountants, where the Winner and Highly Commended are decided purely by public vote. Voting is now open, and will remain open until midnight on 31 October.
