Do you know an outstanding or inspirational business operating in the shire? The Mount Alexander Business Awards are on again and it’s time to nominate your favourite business.
“The awards are designed to showcase and encourage business excellence in the shire,” said Sharon Telford, Mayor of Mount Alexander Shire.
“Whether you have a favourite place to shop or dine, a preferred health provider or a trade business that has provided a service for you at home, why not show your support by nominating them to enter the awards,” said Cr Telford.
“All you need to do is tell us who you’re nominating and why. Your vote will help publicly acknowledge and celebrate the achievements of local businesses,” she said.
The awards are proudly run by Mount Alexander Shire Council in partnership with Maldon & District Community Bank® and media partner The Midland Express / Castlemaine Mail.
Nominations are open in six categories:
- Manufacturing, construction and trade
- Retail, hospitality and tourism
- Micro business
- Professional services
- Creative and cultural.
How to nominate:

Get your vote in by Friday 31 March.
Nomination cards will also available from the Civic Centre, Visitor Information Centres, The Midland Express / Castlemaine Mail office and various community hubs.
Winners will be chosen by an independent judging panel and announced at a gala event in August. Judges will also choose a Business of the Year from the winners of each category.
To be in the running, a business must be nominated, or can self-nominate by the end March. Businesses must then enter the awards and register their ABN between 1 April and 16 May. All nominated businesses will be notified by Council.
