Presented by BBC and Times Radio presenter Chloe Tilley, this year’s event - held in person for the first time since 2019 - attracted record entries as the best of Yorkshire’s economy sought their due recognition.
The event was held slightly later than intended after this newspaper took the decision to move from the original planned venue of Headingley stadium in the wake of the racism scandal at Yorkshire County Cricket Club.
“The standard of entries this year was outstanding, with several applications which would have been stonewall winners in previous years, not even making the shortlist.
“Thank you to everybody involved in making this event so special.”
