Time is running out to nominate your favourite business as the best in Prince Rupert.

The nomination period for the 2013 Prince Rupert and District Chamber of Commerce Business Excellence Awards comes to a close at midnight on Jan. 22, with awards to be handed out in 12 categories this year.

Nominations are being accepted for Business of the Year, for those with more than 25 employees and in operation for more than three years, Rookie Business of the Year, for those in operation for less than three years, Aboriginal Business of the Year, Excellence in Customer Service, Community Involvement, Child Friendly Business of the Year and Green Business of the Year.

As with years past, given the number of businesses in Prince Rupert with less than 25 employees, the small business category has been broken down into three subcategories. The chamber is taking nominations for Small Business of the Year: Industry, Manufacturing and Transportation, Small Business of the Year: Retail, and Small Business of the Year: Hospitality, Tourism and Service.

Non-business awards to be handed out this year include Volunteer Organization of the Year and Chamber Member of the Year.

People wanting to submit a nomination can visit awards.princerupertchamber.ca. Organizers require a written reason for the nomination.
