The BIG Awards for Business

The original open source awards program, the BIG Awards for Business was first launched in 2012. This diverse industry awards program offers companies, their products, their people and their tactics a chance to be globally recognized by panels of business veterans and leaders.

The BIG Awards for Business will reward companies of various sizes (start-up, small, large) in all major verticals. As in previous year, we will continue to offer increased exposure for extraordinary accomplishments by women, small businesses and those working to reduce the impact on our environment.
