The 2020 Black British Business Awards (BBBAwards) is back and they are looking for the UK’s brightest black British rising stars from the creative, corporate and tech sector.

From bankers to fashion designers, tech entrepreneurs and artistic directors, the annual BBBAwards celebrates and spotlights the “often unsung contributions” of black business entrepreneurs and professionals to the UK economy.

  • Arts and Media (media, design, fashion, performance art, publishing, advertising);
  • Consumer and Luxury (food, beverage, retail, travel, cosmetics, luxury goods);
