Time is running out for companies to submit entries for the Ulster Bank Business Achievers Awards.
The scheme celebrates the achievements of small and medium-sized companies across a range of sectors.
There are eight categories, including international business, food and drink, business start-up and agri-business.
The winners of the Ulster provincial stage will compete in the all-island awards ceremony in December.
One firm will be crowned overall Ulster Bank Business Achiever 2015, winning a £35,000 publishing bursary, business mentoring from Enterprise Ireland and a full-service communications workshop. Andy Mills, regional director for business banking at Ulster Bank, said: "Winning a Business Achievers Award is a signal of quality, an opportunity to market your business to new customers and provides significant profile on a local and national level.
"This can be a very strong support for a business, especially if used to access new markets or spark new ideas for product development." Previous Northern Ireland winners in the all-island scheme include Almac Group, CDE Global and TG Eakin.
The awards are run in association with the Belfast Telegraph, Invest NI, IntertradeIreland and SmallBusinessCan.com.
Entries should be made at BusinessAchieversAward.com by Friday, September 25.
