Businesses, who have had a positive impact on the community, are being invited to enter awards that recognise excellence in corporate social responsibility.
Companies, of all sizes, are being encouraged to enter Business in the Community's Awards for Excellence 2005.
Scores of companies have already entered the sixth annual awards, which are supported by The Birmingham Post.
Firms that can demonstrate they are having a favourable impact on the community, the environment, in the workplace, and in the marketplace are given a 'Big Tick' at a regional gala event in June.
The best Big Ticks from around the country then go forward for national judging with overall examples of excellence being announced at the Royal Albert Hall in July.
Winners included Jaguar Cars, Land Rover, Remploy Ltd, Broad Street Windows, AXA, West Bromwich Building Society, Hopes of Longtown, Birmingham Business Action Homelessness (BBAH), Coventry Education Action Zone and Transco.
A spokeswoman for Business in the Community, who organise the event, said this year's awards would be the biggest.
Entries must be submitted by March 11. For further information, contact Emma Evans on 0121 451 2227.
