They provide a unique platform to showcase the achievements of the area’s businesses and celebrate excellence in a range of sectors.
The 2016 awards will be presented at the annual dinner on Friday, September 9 at the Drumossie Hotel in Inverness in front of 350 guests.
Entries, which close on August 1, are being sought in a number of categories, including international business, marine business, outstanding business ambassador, research and innovation, business service and engagement, environmental sustainability, people development and outstanding business achievement.
Councillor John Cowe (pictured), who chairs Moray Council’s economic development and infrastructure services committee, said: “We have many first rate, innovative and successful businesses here in Moray which help to underpin our economy and I hope very much that they will enter for this year’s awards.
“The Highlands and Islands awards are a celebration of the great work that these businesses do and I would be delighted to see a strong representation from Moray at this year’s ceremony.”
