Companies and entrepreneurs have an extra week to enter the most prestigious business awards in Kent.
KEiBA 2019 has extended its entry deadline to Friday, March 1. This year the event - fully entitled the Kent Excellence in Business Awards - marks its 11th anniversary.
There are 16 categories to enter, ranging from Apprenticeship of the Year to the Family Business of the Year.
The awards are staged and produced by KM Media Group and Kent County Council.
Geraldine Allinson, chairman of the KM Group, said: "We're so lucky with how much people support the event around the county and how much people get out of being a winner at KEiBA."
Last year's winners included the likes of Wrotham's Lucas UK Group, Port Lympne Hotel and Reserve and Howletts Wild Animal Park which won the Tourism and Leisure Business of the Year award and KIMS Hospital in Maidstone which won Employer of the Year.
Cllr Mark Dance, cabinet member for economic development at Kent County Council, said: "Kent is full of vibrant businesses, some of the finest in the UK, and the KEiBAs are about celebrating the best of the best.
"Kent businesses are making a difference. They are showcasing what a great county Kent is to live, work and play - and long may that continue."
