Campaspe Murray Business Award Finalists Announced

Finalists in this year’s GMCU Allianz Campaspe Murray Business Awards have been announced, with voting now open for the newly introduced People’s Choice Award.

Businesses from the tourism, retail, trades, agriculture, professional service and other sectors are among those named as finalists across 11 industry categories.

Campaspe Shire Council Mayor, Cr Adrian Weston said there was an increase in the number of entries this year with the standard being extremely competitive.

“An impressive 91 applications were submitted, highlighting the value the business sector places on this local awards program.”

“We have a diverse, energetic commercial community on both sides of the Murray, and the awards nomination process has again showcased the incredible depth of passion that thrives in our local business sector,” Cr Weston said.

As well as the industry categories, 2019 also sees the inclusion of the People’s Choice Award, where members of the public can vote for their favourite finalist.

Murray River Council Deputy Mayor, Cr Gen Campbell said the new category is the perfect platform for the community to recognise and reward local business excellence.

“The awards are all about celebrating excellence in business, leadership, entrepreneurship and innovation, so the public vote is another way to applaud the hard work of our finalists.”

“I encourage the community to recognise and support their favourite finalist by voting in this exciting new category,” Cr Campbell said.

Vote for the People’s Choice Award by Friday 6, September at surveymonkey.com/r/CMBA2019PeoplesChoiceAward.

Category winners and Business of the Year will be announced at the gala presentation evening on Wednesday, 9 October 2019 at the Rich River Golf Club Resort.
