Business Awards showcase the region's best

VOTING is now open in this year's Capricornia Business Awards.

Returning even bigger and better this year, the awards showcase outstanding performances from businesses across the Capricornia region across a wide suite of key categories.

A new format has been introduced this year for the very popular People's Choice category where people are asked to nominate businesses from today to September 8.

Those with four or more nominations then move into a second round of voting from September 18 to 29. This year's awards also feature several new categories, including:

  • Best Tourism, Arts & Culture;
  • Best Micro Business;
  • Best Community Support; and
  • Best National/International Export of Local Products and Services.

Last year thousands of nominations were received.

The awards are jointly supported by the Rockhampton Regional Council, Livingstone Shire Council, Capricorn Enterprise, Capricornia Chamber of Commerce and Capricornia Newspapers Pty Ltd.

This year's winners will be judged by a panel of neutral, yet industry-related specialists from outside the Capricornia region based on strict criteria and awarding of scores.

Winners will be unveiled on Friday, November 3 at the Rockhampton Leagues Club. To vote go to www.capricorniabusinessawards.com.au.
