About the Awards

What are the award categories?

With the changing face of progressive businesses today, the awards are open to all industries and sizes, from a single operator in a home-based setting, to retail shop fronts, tradies and the larger corporations competing nationally and internationally.

Innovation and economic priorities feature highly with awards for businesses that promote safety, innovation and creativity. Those committed to social inclusion will be honoured alongside one of the long -standing industries in Tamworth, being hospitality, accommodation and tourism.

It is also the chance to recognise the faces behind the businesses with award categories for individuals who have made an outstanding contribution, employers, entrepreneurs and leaders of the future.

Among the 30 regional awards, ten winners will go on to the regional finalist awards hosted by the NSW Chamber of Business.

Who should enter?

It is open to all businesses, ‘not for profits’ and social enterprises - you don’t need to be member of the Tamworth Business Chamber and there is no cost to enter.

This year there is a special call out to those who have never entered before, particularly new start-up businesses.

If I have entered in the past, can I enter again?

Experience matters and for all the entrants, finalists and winners from previous years, the Tamworth Business Chamber welcomes you back for a chance to measure your continuing successes against the best in your category.

What are the benefits of entering?

Previous entrants speak of it being one of the greatest opportunities to focus on ‘working on the business’ and not ‘in the business’. Many were amazed by how the submission process and opportunity of networking with other thriving business operators, guided their strategic business plans into the future.

All entrants receive a “nominated” sticker to proudly display at your workplace and if your business is judged a finalist or winner, you’ll want to put Friday 9 August in your diary for the Gala Awards night at TRECC.
