2022 Finalists announced

Following an extensive judging process, the shortlist of finalists have now been unveiled for the Oldham Business Awards 2022 at a reception hosted at the Mahdlo Youth Zone, Oldham on Thursday 11th August.

Category sponsors and finalists were invited to the reception at the Oldham based youth organisation, where they had the chance to meet other nominees and the volunteer organisers from the business awards steering group.

The winners for each category will be announced at the Oldham Business Awards 2022 gala ceremony, which takes place on the evening of Friday 7th October 2022, at the Queen Elizabeth Hall.

Mahdlo and the Oldham Business Awards have an extensive relationship spanning many years, with profits form the event in part going to support the many programmes Mahdlo deliver for the youth in Oldham.

Speaking at the reception for shortlisted finalists, Steve Kilroy, the chair person of the Awards steering group, thanked all sponsors for their valued support and congratulated the finalists for being shortlisted.

Judging panels, which include representatives of the category sponsors, reviewed all this year’s business award entries at the start of the year before shortlisting three finalists for each of the ten categories.

Their picks for each award can be found below.

This year’s awards will be hosted by Martyn Torr and ITV’s Caroline Whitmore.
