Almost all UK businesses (including non-profit) can apply and the application process is free. All applications must be made online.

Her Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant of Cumbria, Mrs. Claire Hensman said:

“I am thrilled that one of Cumbria’s outstanding companies, Createc, has won the Queen’s Award for Enterprise for a second time, this year in the Innovation category. Last year their award was for International Trade. This is an exceptional achievement and I do congratulate them.

"I also thank them for raising the flag for Cumbrian companies. In this county we have world-class company clusters of excellence deserving the recognition that an award would bring. I challenge those companies which meet the eligibility requirements to make the effort to apply. There is evidence from previous winners that the international standing of the award brings tangible benefits to their business.”
