The awards process continues to evolve each year, taking account of feedback from entrants and judges to ensure that the process is as fair as possible with maximum benefits to all concerned. The following pages cover the key strands within the awards programme, which covers the counties of Dorset, Wiltshire, Gloucestershire, Bath, Bristol, Somerset, Devon, Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.

Cornwall & Isles of Scilly, Devon & Dorset

Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, Devon and Dorset have their own tourism awards which link in with the SW Awards.  If your business is based in these areas, you must enter these awards for all but a few categories which are only run at the South West level.  Finalists from these awards will automatically be ‘fast-tracked’ into the judging for the South West awards.

If based in Devon see www.devontourismawards.org.uk

If based in Dorset see www.dorsettourismawards.org.uk

Bristol businesses

Businesses in Bristol may enter the Bristol Hospitality Awards, which includes most, but not all, of the categories included in the South West awards. Bristol businesses are also encouraged to enter direct into the South West awards, recognising that Bristol is both one of England's top cities and also part of the UK's top tourism region.

For information about the Bristol Hospitality Awards, follow announcements at www.visitbristol.co.uk

Businesses in Somerset, Bath, Wiltshire & Gloucestershire

For businesses in these parts of the South West, there are currently no recognised local awards schemes, so please use the information and entry forms from this website to take part direct in the South West Tourism Excellence Awards.
