About The Awards

The Greater Newry Area Business Awards 2019 will recognise and reward excellence, right across many sectors of the local business community throughout the Newry, Mourne and Down District Council area.

This year, there are a record 26 award categories and every business located in the Greater Newry Area will have the opportunity to enter up to 4 categories. It is important to ensure that the selected categories are relevant to your business, showcasing its strengths and thus giving you the best chance of ultimately being successful.

Winning one of these prestigious awards is only part of the process. The awards provide local businesses with a bench mark of quality, providing an opportunity to examine how customers view them and how they measure up against the competition.

Participating businesses will benefit from enhanced community spirit, increased consumer confidence, greater support, networking and PR opportunities. The recognition of business success promotes a positive company culture and elevates employee enthusiasm which leads to better company performance.

Remember the importance of SMART goals in business – whether you are a charity, social enterprise, sole trader or Public Limited Company, your business goals and objectives must be:


All applications are EVIDENCE-BASED so make sure to support your answers to each question with supporting evidence where possible. Please demonstrate how your business has achieved its SMART goals in line with the criteria to improve your chances of winning.

Newry Chamber of Commerce & Trade is delighted once again to showcase the very best of local talent, entrepreneurship, best practice and teamwork.
