Nom­i­na­tions for the 2017 Gas­coyne Re­gional Busi­ness Awards are open.

Two Gas­coyne busi­nesses took out State gongs at the WA State Re­gional Busi­ness Awards af­ter win­ning the in­au­gu­ral lo­cal award last year.

Nom­i­na­tions can be made across 11 in­dus­try cat­e­gories and nine cat­e­gories, with busi­nesses able to be nom­i­nated for mul­ti­ple awards. Ap­pli­ca­tions close on July 3. Win­ners will be an­nounced at a gala pre­sen­ta­tion night in Ex­mouth on Septem­ber 2.

To be con­sid­ered for a State award, busi­nesses must win a re­gional small busi­ness award, have a head of­fice and main op­er­a­tions based in WA, and must em­ploy no more than 20 full-time or equiv­a­lent staff, among other rules.

Busi­nesses must also have been in op­er­a­tion for at least 12 months.

Bullara Sta­tion won the 2016 busi­ness lo­cal cat­e­gory.

Sta­tion man­ager Ed­wine Shall­cross said the awards were an op­por­tu­nity to cel­e­brate the di­ver­sity and suc­cess of re­gional busi­ness.
