During these times of economic uncertainty there's more reason than ever to celebrate the success of our local businesses.
The fourth annual Huddersfield Business Awards, in association with Chadwick Lawrence, provide an opportunity to recognise the achievements of firms and individuals making a major contribution to their organisations and the town - often in the face of difficult trading conditions
The awards feature 11 categories covering all types and sizes of businesses from start-ups to established companies.
Among the categories are ones recognising exemplary employers, exporters, talented young business people, creative enterprises and companies setting an example for enviromental improvement and community involvement.
The 2009 awards promise to build even further on previous business awards and we are very much looking forward to the town's leading business people gathering at the Galpharm Stadium for another spectacular awards night.
So don't miss out on your chance to share in the celebration, put your business in the spotlight with staff, customers and suppliers alike and shout out about your achievements.
I hope you will help to reinforce Huddersfield's reputation for enterprise by taking part in this year's awards.
