Borough businesses have the unique opportunity to register until 18 May for the Telford50 Business Award and get the recognition their achievements in Telford and Wrekin deserve!
As part of the Telford 50 celebrations, Telford & Wrekin Council wants to highlight the special role that businesses play in making Telford such a vibrant place to live and work in.
At the Shropshire Chamber Business Awards on 15 June at Telford International Centre, the Council will make a Telford50 award to the company that has had the greatest impact to the borough any time over the past 50 years.

A shortlist of four companies will be announced on the website by 18 May.
A public vote will be held afterwards to decide the winner.
All types of businesses can apply for this award - whether they are new to Telford and Wrekin or have been in the area in the last 50 years, whether their name is locally, nationally or internationally renowned, whether they are small, medium or large.
Applicants to the Telford50 Business Award only need to say in 250 words why they think they should win the award and what makes them stand out in Telford and Wrekin.
