The awards are an opportunity for businesses to gain recognition and exposure for their business and are also a way to become part of a community of like-minded individuals, who share one common goal - success.


Award Categories


Two types of award categories were contested by local business, the Local Awards and Business NSW aligned awards.


“The alignment of the Awards helps local businesses achieve greater recognition and showcase our region as a great place to do business,” said Lisa McPherson, WCCI Executive Officer.

“Taking part in the Awards program gives local businesses operators the opportunity to reflect on their business journey and celebrate with their team,” she added.

“While not everyone can win an award on the night, the Awards recognise all local businesses and the contributions they make to our regional lifestyle. We thank everyone who entered and hope to see more businesses participate next year,” said Lisa.

Big thanks to our amazing Sponsors that helped make it all happen:


Not all present on the night received an award, but all were entertained by MC Matt Lester, Sand Artist John Theiring and danced late into the evening to the beat of the Blue Hyp Band.
