Application process open for Queen's Award for Enterprise

Fashion and textile businesses are being urged to apply for the 2009 Queen's Awards for Enterprise – the Royal standard of excellence for outstanding business success.

Winners can use the Queen's Award emblem on all marketing for five years and application for the award is free.

There are three award categories, international trade, innovation and sustainable development.

Any number of firms can win an award in each category, provided they can demonstrate outstanding or continuous business achievement in their field.

A Queen's Award is a quality standard to which any business, in any sector, can and should aspire," said secretary of The Queens' Awards Office, Steve Brice.

"Winners consistently tell us how valuable their Award win has been to their business. It costs nothing to apply for a Queen's Award, and detailed feedback is given to unsuccessful applicants to help them work towards a successful Award application in a future year. So whether or not they win, a small investment of time in a Queen's Award application now can prove to be a very major investment in future business success."

The deadline for the 2009 Awards is October 31 2008 and applications can be made online at
