It’s looking like a record year for entries to this year’s G-Awards – not to mention more pleas than ever for more time to complete their submissions – so organisers have added an extra four weeks, making Friday 13 August lucky for some latecomers.

“We have listened and we recognise that this is not a normal year for the industry,” said organiser Tony Higgin.

“The other factor in this is the amount of entries companies are entering, Business are really going all out with entries in 2021.

“As a result of these extraordinary times there are more reasons, innovation and development out there for businesses to put themselves forward, than ever before.”

The gala dinner and awards event remains the same and the winners and hopefuls with gather at the London Hilton Park Lane on Friday, November 26.
