About the BBA

Celebrating the best of British business in Japan

Now in its ninth year, the British Business Awards (BBA), a not-for-profit event organised by the British Chamber of Commerce in Japan (BCCJ), recognise excellence and promote success and innovation across all industries. The awards also acclaim the important social contributions made by organisations through their commitment to community, ethical behaviour and environmental sustainability.

Submitting a nomination for the BBA provides organisations with the opportunity to review business performance and highlight core strengths, setting a benchmark for industry standards. 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. 

Winning a BBA trophy is a prestigious endorsement of an organisation’s projects, initiatives, products or achievements. Winners are acknowledged as industry leaders and named the best in their respective categories. This is a valuable measure of success that can be used in a variety of communications creating publicity, positive organisational profiling and heightened credibility. Winners are eligible to publicise their achievement in all their marketing collateral, providing they state the category and year in which the award was won. 

Put yourself in the running to win a British Business Award – the ultimate seal of approval for your business and a subject to talk about with clients for many years to come!
