Do I have to wait for someone to nominate me/my business or do I enter myself/my business? 

If you wish to enter the 2019 Peak Connect Business Awards, you can either self-nominate, or wait until entries open and complete an entry form. If you are nominated by someone else, you will receive and email notification to confirm the nomination and tell you how to enter.


Can I enter multiple categories?

Yes you can enter as many categories as you like, this year we have simplified the entry form so you can enter multiple categories and pay for your entry in the one form.


How is it judged?

The awards are judged by the submission you supply. The people’s choice categories are judged by the general public, through online voting only, only one vote per IP address is counted.


Who are the judges?

The judges range from various fields of expertise, they are not based in Bathurst and have no affiliation to the Bathurst Business Chamber or any of our suppliers or sponsors. The judges can change from year to year, some are even located interstate.


What does my $40 entry fee go towards?

Your entry fee goes towards the running of the awards.


Who is this year’s charity?

This year the Peak Connect Carillon Business Awards will support the fundraising efforts of a local charity that will be announced closer to the awards launch. Fundraising will be completed in the form of a raffle and auction at the Gala Night.


Do I need to advertise to win?

How you decide to market your business is entirely up to yourself and your marketing budget. The Western Advocate or any other advertising agency have no sway on the voting process.
