Call for Nominations for Kilkenny’s Best Craft Businesses

Posted 09.09.19

Kilkenny Chamber of Commerce, along with main sponsor, State Street, has launched the Kilkenny Business Awards 2019. Owing to Kilkenny’s unique relationship with the craft industry, a special category has been developed ‘Craft Business of the Year’ to celebrate the county’s many extraordinary craft businesses.

Kilkenny Chamber is now calling upon individuals and enterprises across Kilkenny to nominate businesses for one of the prestigious awards. It's open to all craft businesses operating in Kilkenny City and County.

Businesses are encouraged to enter in up to three of the categories available ranging from ‘Customer Service Excellence’ to ‘Family Business of the Year’ along with the ‘Craft Business of the Year’ award. With 20 categories available, the Awards programme has celebrated the breadth of commerce throughout County Kilkenny for more than two decades and provides a wonderful opportunity to platform business successes. 

The awards are free to enter and open to both members and non-members of Kilkenny Chamber of Commerce alike.

Kilkenny Chamber of Commerce has introduced a simple on-line nomination and application form to process the anticipated large volumes of applicants for the popular awards scheme. 

Nominations close on Wednesday, September 18th. Thereafter candidates will be required to put forward a full application by Friday, September 27th.

A shortlist of finalists will be announced and go on to the interview round in October.
