Innovation can be said to be at the core of any successful forward-thinking business and in this category we set out to recognize sectors pioneers of every form.

Innovation is the category with one of the widest scopes within the Excellence Awards as it looks at novel new approaches in every area, from the fruits of research and development to novel new business practices.

What all the ranked entities have in common is the demonstration of new concepts not just within their own business but in the sector as a whole. The category includes any projects, services or concepts that demonstrate an innovative approach to the market.

Project Examples

  • New products
  • New services
  • Novel product features
  • Marketing strategy
  • Business practices

Submitting case studies

All companies and institutions are invited to submit evidence to the rankings research via the submission of case studies through our Submission Portal. Case studies are any projects, deals or news related to the company in the 12 months back from our submission deadline.

For each case study you should explain the following details of the project:

  • Aims
  • Challenges
  • Process
  • Key personnel
  • Innovative or novel elements
  • Outcome (including effect on your business)

Case studies will be taken into consideration for all relevant ranking categories.

Submitting your case studies is the best way to ensure that we are aware of the innovative and outstanding work you are doing so you get the credit you deserve.
