2012 BBA Judging Begins

Oct. 19, 2012


We are very pleased to announce that, by the conclusion of the 2012 British Business Award (BBA) nomination period (Friday 12 October at 17:00), we had received a record 38 nominations that met our submission criteria.

2012 British Business Award Nominations

  • Company of the Year: 10

  • Entrepreneur of the Year: 7

  • Social Responsibility: 8

  • UK-Japan Partnership: 6

  • Person of the Year: 7


TOTAL: 38 (31 in 2011)


BBA nominations are judged against specific criteria, founded on the BBA values of success, innovation and ethics. The BBA employs a well-defined and tested framework to ensure that the judging process is fair and free of influence.

The decision on a winning 2012 BBA entry is the result of the combined score of 5 separate judges, who independently score each submission using the same scoring matrix.

The 2012 BBA Nomination Form lists criteria for nominations in each award category; the judges are looking to see each of these points addressed in submissions. Each point is scored using the following scoring matrix:

0 point                 No evidence

1 points               Minimal evidence

2 points               Reasonable evidence

3 points               Good evidence

4 points               Clear, strong evidence

To ensure transparency, each judge independently returns his or her score sheet to the BCCJ Secretariat by October 30 2012 and the results are tabulated confidentially. The scores from each judge are then totaled for each nominee, and the nomination with the highest accumulative score is declared the category winner.

In the event of two nominees receiving the same final score, all judges will be asked to review their scores for these companies / individuals, and the submission with the highest score from this second round of judging will be declared the winner.

The final results remain confidential until the BBA ceremony, on November 2 2012.
