Awards deadline draws near

Time is running out for entries to the Accountancy Age Awards for Excellence 1999; to accommodate demand, the original deadline has been extended to 13 August. The awards ceremony, which will mark Accountancy Age’s 30th anniversary, will take place at the Natural History Museum on 3 November. It will showcase the achievements of accountants in all parts of the UK from the Big Five to the smallest firm, from FTSE 100 companies to the smallest enterprise and throughout the public sector.

Categories include large, medium and small firms of the year, public sector achievement, finance director and finance team of the year. The newest members of the profession will be eligible to enter for either trainee or new accountant of the year.

There are awards too for the best annual report and accounts, accounting software package of the year and best recruitment advertisement. Most popular award is likely to be the Accountancy Age Personality who will be chosen by readers from those who have made the greatest contribution to accountancy.
