Entries for the Mount Alexander Business Awards have now closed with an excellent response from local businesses and the community.

The local business awards provide the opportunity to recognise and celebrate our local businesses for their achievements.
“Thank you to everyone who took the time to nominate and enter,” said David Leathem, Manager Economy and Culture, Mount Alexander Shire Council.

“We saw 157 unique businesses nominated in a pool of nearly 340 nominations from the community.

“We were really pleased to see an increase in the number of entries this year with 69 award entries received,” said Mr Leathem.

“Local businesses are at the heart of our community and the quality of entries demonstrates the breadth of knowledge, experience, innovation and sound business practice in our shire.”

Local businesses were nominated across categories including: Manufacturing, construction and trade, Agribusiness, Retail and hospitality, Tourism and events, Micro business, Professional services, Creative industries, and Health and wellbeing.

The winners of each category will be in the running for the coveted Business of the Year award which will walk away with $2,000 prize money. There will also be an award for best practice in accessibility.

Judging starts this month with a review of all entries. The judges will short list the entries in each category, and start conducting site visits at the end of the month.

The finalists in each award category will be announced in November, and the winners will be announced at a gala event celebrating all businesses in December. Look out for tickets on sale in November.

The awards are run in partnership with the Midland Express/Castlemaine Mail, and are proudly supported by Business Mount Alexander, Good Earth Garden Supplies, Maldon Inc., Maldon & District Community Bank, Small Business Victoria and Workspace Australia.

“Council and our program partners wish all businesses that entered the best of luck,” said Mr Leathem. For more information visit www.mountalexanderbusinessawards.com.au.
