ARE YOU READY?
Submissions for the 2018 Chamber of Commerce Business Excellence Awards are now being accepted. All submissions must adhere to the rules of entry.
Lifetime Achievement Award
There are individuals who dedicate their lives to shaping and improving the community in which they live. These individuals lay the foundations necessary for future growth and development, and without them the business community would not be as successful as it is today.
This award will be presented to a longstanding member of the Chamber of Commerce. The recipient will have had a significant impact on the Chamber and the business community and will have been a member for a minimum of 10 years.
Entrepreneur of the Year
Entrepreneurs are innovators. They introduce unique products and services to the marketplace. They see new and exciting opportunities where others don’t and act on them. They are trendsetters and risk takers.
Entrepreneurs will be evaluated on their impact on the market, their effectiveness as an innovative strategist, and more.
Small Business of the Year
A ‘Small Business of the Year’ proves that size doesn’t matter when it comes to making an impact. This title shows that small businesses are just as effective at supporting those around them, even with less manpower and resources at their disposal.
Entrants will be a small or micro business, with 12 employees or fewer. Nominees will be evaluated on their performance in the market, potential for future growth, and more.
Community Impact Award
Whilst the main objective of a successful business is their profit margins, many seek to support the community in which they are based. Money isn’t everything, and these businesses show it. They care about protecting the environment, developing initiatives and projects to improve the lives of those less fortunate, and much more.
Submissions will be evaluated on the impact, sustainability and importance of their initiatives and projects.
Commitment to Education
Education is one of the key pillars of any community, and businesses work hard to support the students that will, one day, become industry leaders. These businesses not only commit themselves to help students, but also the institutions that are responsible for creating them.
Entrants in this category will be evaluated on the importance of educational development to the company, strategies developed to improve support for students and more.
Business of the Year
‘Business of the Year’ is a title all organisations strive for. It’s a title that illustrates the dedication and accomplishments of a business, and the significant impact they have on the community.
Entrants in this category will be evaluated on their corporate-social responsibility, treatment and training of staff, and more.
Marketing Campaign of the Year
A powerful marketing campaign is one of the most effective tools in a business’ arsenal. It can evoke a wide range of emotions, capture a person’s attention, and influence their decisions.
Submissions will be evaluated on the effectiveness, impact on the community and engagement with customers. Click here to see the judging criteria for this award in full.
