Business leaders are being urged to get their entry forms in for the Entrepreneurial Exchange awards.
Next Friday (Aug 28) is the cut-off point for forms to be submitted for either the Entrepreneur of the Year or the Emerging Entrepreneur category.
Last year, Simon Howie scooped the top gong, and he will be part of the judging panel to decide who will succeed him.
John Anderson, chief executive of the Exchange, said: "Although economic conditions remain harsh, there are many individuals and companies across Scotland who continue to buck the trend."
The event, sponsored by Bank of Scotland and in association with Deloitte and Business7, takes place on November 26 in Glasgow.
The entry form can be down-loaded from www.entrepreneurialexchange.co.uk with further information from Kylie Forrest at KL Events on 01698 459966.
