• Applicants must submit an online application. This is followed by two rounds of adjudication to
select the winners and runners-up.
• First round adjudication: Following the submission of all entries, our panel of adjudicators reviews the businesses entered and draws up a shortlist of entrants
• Second round adjudication: All shortlisted business owners are invited to prepare a presentation to a panel of adjudicators in Johannesburg, or virtually, about their business and showcase why they are deserving of the prize. A business presentation template will be made available for voluntary use.
• Business connect:
All finalists from the second round adjudication will be invited to attend a two-day business connect webinar for various business training in March 2021.
The overall winner and the four-sector winners will be announced at the BIC Awards Ceremony to be held through a Webinar in March 2021.
