Good luck to all our category entrants for this year’s Awards

When you enter the Clarence Valley Business Excellence Awards you have the opportunity to review your business achievements and benchmark your performance against businesses similar to yours. It's also a great chance to network, raise the profile of your business and reward the hard work of you and your staff. 

There are two separate facets to the Business Excellence Awards – the People's Choice Awards which are decided by public vote and the 14 other awards which are entered by filling in the entry form and going through a judging process. 

To enter a judged category, refer to the category descriptions and choose up to two that best fit your business. Sponsors are not eligible to enter any category of the Awards. 

The best overall business will receive the prestigious Business of the Year Award. All businesses entering the Awards will also be judged for the Excellence in Work Health and Safety and Excellence in Accessibility Awards. 

Please check our 2019 entry guidelines for eligibility criteria for each category
