Big is big, but SMALL IS BETTER

The BASA Awards® is exclusively designed for small businesses, to ensure that competition is fair and that you will only ever compete against other small businesses. More importantly, we guarantee that there is no favouritism, no obligatory club membership, or the need to invest in expensive flights or hotels to win. We aim to provide your business with instant credibility with your existing and potential clients through this recognition.

About the Awards

The BASA Awards® was created to celebrate small businesses, visionaries, innovators, disruptors, and entrepreneurs for their outstanding efforts in growing our economy and building a better world.  Unlike other business awards, ours is proudly independent and was inspired by a passion for small enterprises.  With small businesses comprising 99% of UK companies we recognise that small is BIG for our economy. The BASA Awards® aims to showcase the very best of small businesses for their exceptional work and contributions to their communities, and to encourage others to experience new opportunities.

  • For small businesses only. We are unlike any other business awards.

  • Our economy revolves around small businesses. We’re looking for the best small businesses out there.

150+ Categories. 6 Tracks.

Here you will find none of that ‘big guys always winning’ nature. With more than 150 categories to choose from, our award is not influenced by big corporations, nepotism, or the vetting process. The BASA Awards® Judges care about one thing only - YOUR WORK!

  • Small businesses are the backbone of our economy. We’re searching for the best of them. 

  • It’s time to give small business entrepreneurs the recognition they deserve for making it happen! 

The Trophy

The BASA Awards’ official statuette depicts a woman using all her might to reach for a star. Standing just under 40 centimetres tall and weighing 500 grams, she is designed to embody the years of hardship and unrecognised work that entrepreneurs and small businesses face before carving a space for themselves in their community. Named Atlanta, the BASA Awards® trophy’s namesake was inspired by the city where she was founded and the story of the Greek Goddess, Atlanta. 

The goddess was a human huntress, symbolising courage and nobility, traits of entrepreneurs that we celebrate. The statuettes are all 100% handmade of ceramic with real gold lustre. More than 150 categories will be honoured for their achievements by the end of November 2024.
