Nominations for 2018 GUBA Awards are now open

GUBA: Nominations are now open for 2018

NOMINATIONS FOR the 2018 GUBA awards opened yesterday.

The GUBA awards is an annual awards ceremony based in Britain which recognises the ‘hugely significant’ contribution that British-Ghanaians make to society.

Dentaa Amoateng, CEO of GUBA enterprise, said: “The call for nominations is a crucial part of the GUBA Awards. The process allows for the public to have their say and bring forth a wide array of talented and deserving individuals. I urge everyone to participate in this process, to bring to light the talents that go unrecognised.”

This year’s awards feature 11 categories including the Made in Ghana award, the Innovation and Technology award and the Rising Star award.

Akua Wood, CEO of Sheabutter Cottage, won an the award for small emerging business in 2013.

Wood said: "Although I have been in business for a while, winning the GUBA award has helped raise my profile tremendously. GUBA is a known brand, therefore, being associated with it has brought on a lot of acknowledgement and a potentially new customer base. Winning the award has had a positive impact on my business and on a personal level."

Award events will take place over two days for the first time ever this year. A seminar on African entrepreneurship will take place on Friday 13th July, followed by the GUBA Awards ceremony on Saturday 14 July 2018.

The awards ceremony will take place at the InterContinental Hotel in London.

Nominations for this year’s awards close on Tuesday 10 April.

The inaugural GUBA Awards ceremony was held in the Porchester Hall in October 2010.

UK-based Ghanaian TV personality Amoateng founded the awards in 2009 after feeling there was “nothing out there” to celebrate the hard work and successes of British Ghanaians.
