There has been a change in the Terms and Conditions this year. Please be aware of the following:

  • Where a Local Chamber (LCC) Awards program exists and that LCC partner aligns all, or some of their categories and criteria with the NSW Business Chamber Awards program, LCC members cannot enter directly into the NSW Business Chamber Awards for those aligned categories at a Regional Level.
  • To enter the NSWBC aligned Awards, you must be a member, or associate member of the NSW Business Chamber.
  • You do not have to be a Chamber member to enter the MGGL Local Recognition Awards, but it is certainly desirable. The chamber welcomes new members to join or enter the awards.

Other than these two types of awards there are several categories judged at local level.

Local Major Awards include the following:

Two awards are judged based on Entries received for the Award Categories:

  • Business of the Year – Overall Winner!
  • Business of the Year – Runner up

One award is based on nominations from the Local Chambers

  • Hall of Fame

Details of how to nominate or be nominated for these two awards are available on the website:

Local Chamber Meetings this month will cover important information about the process and help with applications. There will also be Mentoring available for those who want to access this kind of assistance. You can contact Manning Valley Business Chamber to find out further details about these meetings and mentoring assistance.

All Nominations Have Now Closed.
