With a revamped format and more first time entries from local businesses than ever before, the Orange Business Chamber are expecting to celebrate their most successful awards season ever.

To enter the awards, businesses were required to nominate their business or employee by completing an online entry form and answer, in less than 120 words, the general nomination entry question.

“The new awards format has been well received by the Orange business community,” said Business Chamber President Mark Madigan. “Changing the focus of the awards to champion the values of business, along with the written submission format, encouraged nominees to demonstrate to the external judging panel how their business strategies have contributed to achieving their goals.”

Judges were pleased with the calibre of the entrants after receiving nominations with finalists due to be announced on Wednesday 30 November.

“It’s a testament to the quality of businesses in the Orange region,” said Mr Madigan.

“The People’s Choice Award has been well supported, the Orange Business Chamber encourages the community to visit the Central Western Daily’s website and vote for their favourite business. It’s the community’s opportunity to engage with the awards program and reward the businesses they believe make a positive contribution to the Orange business community,” said Mr Madigan.

Judging of the finalists in the Banjo Business Awards will take place from Monday 16 January - Friday 27 January 2017 with the gala dinner and announcement of winners held on Saturday 25 January.
