This year, along with the regular events, the Chamber hosted a ‘How to Write an Award-Winning Submission’ workshop with local marketing expert, Karenna Wood. 

Even if you couldn't attend the workshop, we have created this online tutorial to assist you to prepare the best submission you possibly can.



Our panel of judges are selected from various business support organisations and are not local. They are unbiased professionals who volunteer their expertise to judge the submissions. We hope you dazzle them with your entries this year.

Winning an award can be incredibly beneficial to your business, which can be used to elevate your organisation and employees above your competitors. All winners received a plaque and editorial coverage with our media partner Echo News. The Chamber will also promote your business via our varius channels. So what’s to lose?
