Judges have announced 48 finalists across 13 categories for this year’s 2012 Powercor Wimmera Business Awards.
They have assessed 85 applications from across Hindmarsh, Horsham, Northern Grampians, West Wimmera and Yarriambiack shires, reflecting the strength of regional business.
Officials will announce winners at a black-tie gala presentation evening at Horsham Town Hall tomorrow.
This year 26 judges with diverse business back grounds have volunteered their time to visit the applicants and see them in action.
They have reported that the quality of the applications had been exceptional, noting a high level in difficulty in selecting finalists and that all businesses had shown they valued their staff, clients and all that the region had to offer.
Wimmera Development Association has organised a brief video for the finalists which will be available to businesses after the awards as a promotional tool.
Award categories cover the range of businesses in the Wimmera – tourism-attractions, retail – both independent and franchise, manufacturing-export, best new business, industry – service, not for profit and professional, food and beverage, innovation in primary industry and benefits of skilled migration.
The 2012 Powercor Wimmera Business Awards are every two years to promote regional business excellence and showcase the diversity of businesses in the region.
Ticket order forms are available from the Wimmera Development Association website
