Nom­i­na­tions open for awards

Pilbara News - - Pilibra Business - Court­ney Fowler

Mem­ber for Durack Melissa Price is call­ing on her con­stituents to cel­e­brate the suc­cess of lo­cal busi­nesses by nom­i­nat­ing them for the 2016 Tel­stra Aus­tralian Busi­ness Awards.

For 24 years, the awards have recog­nised Aus­tralia’s en­tre­pre­neur­ial spirit and the courage of small and medium busi­ness.

Ms Price said nom­i­nat­ing a busi­ness would give it the op­por­tu­nity to be recog­nised among Aus­tralia’s best.

“It takes an in­cred­i­ble amount of sac­ri­fice and tenac­ity to run a busi­ness, and we see this ev­ery day in busi­nesses across Durack,” she said.

“It’s im­por­tant for us to cel­e­brate them and con­tinue to en­cour­age their growth. I en­cour­age ev­ery­one to get be­hind th­ese of­ten unsung he­roes by nom­i­nat­ing our bril­liant lo­cal busi­nesses.”

Ev­ery busi­ness that en­ters the awards re­ceives a free 70-page Busi­ness Health Check re­port eval­u­at­ing their busi­ness.

En­tries are open un­til March 23 across five award cat­e­gories — New Busi­ness Award, Mi­cro Busi­ness Award, Small Busi­ness Award, Medium Busi­ness Award and the Char­ity Award.

State and Ter­ri­tory win­ners will be named at gala event later this year.

The WA din­ner and awards pre­sen­ta­tion will be on July 8.
