Here’s a quick round up of a few you might want to think about entering or voting in.

Next up there’s the Techcrunch Europas, a celebration for all things web startup throughout Europe on which you can vote. If you want to vote for your favourite be quick, as winners are announced next Wednesday 9 July.

For businesses with an eye on international trade with China there’s the Cathay Pacific China Business Awards. These aim to recognise successful British businesses in the region. Entries to be submitted online by 31 October 2009.

Finally bringing awards right back down to a local level, we’ve just heard about the Martin & Audrey Wood Enterprise Awards launched by Oxford Innovation. The awards celebrate hi-tech startups in Oxfordshire and the Thames Valley. To enter or nominate a company before the closing date of 15 September 2009, head to the above link.
