BUSINESS heroes are being sought for a chance of winning £5,000.

Barclays Trading Places Awards are open to everyone who has been trading for a minimum of three months and a maximum of three years, with an annual turnover of less than £1 million and a story to tell.

Winners will be no strangers to overcoming adversity whether it's dealing with illness or disability, facing challenging family responsibilities head-on, or turning their back on benefits.

This year's national finalists will be competing in three new categories - Triumph over Disability, Success after Unemployment and the Spirit of Inspiration Award - before hoping to be named the 2009 Barclays Trading Places Winner.

Each category winner will walk away with £5,000 for their business, courtesy of Barclays, and all national finalists will receive £2,000 worth of computer software from Microsoft.

Entries must be in by May 22 and nomination leaflets are available by contacting 0800 085 3203 or visit:
