Nominate your favourite business in the Mount Alexander Business Awards.

Monday 12 August 2019

The Mount Alexander Business Awards are on again and it’s time to nominate your favourite business for the awards which aim to showcase and encourage business excellence in the shire.

The awards are proudly run by Mount Alexander Shire Council in partnership with The Midland Express / Castlemaine Mail.

“Local businesses are the backbone of our community and your vote will help recognise their value and the innovative things they are doing,” said David Leathem, Manager, Economy and Culture, Mount Alexander Shire.

“Businesses can also self-nominate. The awards provide a good opportunity for businesses to reflect on their current practices, planning processes and achievements,” he said.

There are some new categories this year to better reflect the range of businesses in the shire, and those that are working towards providing best practice initiatives to improve accessibility for all ages and abilities. Council will also run mentoring sessions to help businesses with their applications.

“We are pleased to offer mentoring opportunities this year to help businesses with the development of their business and marketing plans as part of the entry process,” said Mr Leathem.

Nominations are open in nine categories:

• Manufacturing, Construction and Trade
• Agribusiness
• Retail and Hospitality
• Tourism and Events
• Micro Business
• Professional Services
• Creative Industries
• Health and Wellbeing
• Accessibility

How to nominate
• Visit www.mountalexanderbusinessawards.com.au
• Tell us the name of the business and why
• Get your vote in by Monday 9 September.

Nomination cards will also be available from the Civic Centre, Visitor Information Centres, The Midland Express / Castlemaine Mail office and various community hubs.

Winners will be chosen by an independent judging panel and announced at a gala event in December. Judges will also choose a Business of the Year from the winners of each category.

To be in the running, a business must be nominated, or can self-nominate by 9 September. Businesses need to enter the awards and register their ABN between 9 September to Monday 7 October. All nominated businesses will be notified by Council.
