The Awards program runs from March to June offering local businesses the opportunity to review their operations and share their business journey through the Awards entry process.

The return of the Wauchope and Hinterland Awards last year saw 37 announcements made at the 2022 Gala Dinner acknowledging 17 Highly Commended and 20 Winners. The Awards included both local Awards and categories that aligned with Business NSW. All the Awards were judged by an independent panel from outside the region. Local categories also include a voting element in the scoring process. Over 1,000 people voted for local businesses casting over 1,750 votes.

The 2023 Awards program will include the launch event in March, public voting and of course the celebration night at the Gala Dinner Event set for the 17th of June 2023.

“All businesses are encouraged to enter when the Awards open. Criteria and key dates will be available soon,” Lisa McPherson, Executive Officer of the Wauchope Chamber of Commerce said.
