Extra time to submit entries to this year's Express & Star Business Awards

Extra time is being given for entries to be submitted for the Express & Star Business Awards 2024.

The 2024 awards are open for entries

This year's awards also celebrate the newspaper’s 150-year history.

There has already been a great response to the awards but organisers have decided to extend the deadline to 5pm on Wednesday, March 6, to give businesses a little more time to get their last-minute submissions finished.

There will be 11 awards presented at the The Halls Wolverhampton on Thursday, June 13.

The Express & Star itself sponsors the overall Business of the Year category.

Other top awards include Manufacturing Champion which is intended to celebrate the excellence of firms in the sector which is such a big part of the newspaper's circulation area.

Growth and Innovation and Employee of the Year are another two of the categories
