The King's Awards for Enterprise recognise and encourage the outstanding achievements of UK businesses in the fields of:

  • Innovation
  • International Trade
  • Sustainable Development
  • Promoting Opportunities (through Social Mobility)


In 2023 thirty businesses from across the Midlands were the proud recipients of the awards. Winners of the King's Award will be:

  • Invited to a Royal reception
  • Presented with the award at your company by one of The King's representatives, a Lord-Lieutenant
  • Able to fly The King's Award flag at your main office, and use the emblem on your marketing materials (for example, on your packaging, advertisements, stationary and website)
  • Given a Grant of Appointment (an official certificate) and a commemorative crystal trophy


Why apply?

Valid for five years, winners have reported benefiting from worldwide recognition, increased commerical value, greater press coverage and a boost to staff morale so there are plenty of reasons to consider applying.


Application and eligibility:

You can now apply for the 2024 awards until midday on 12th September 2023. Eligibility criteria, and more information about the application process can be found here.
