Who, what and how?

Ready to apply for the 2018 South West Small Business Awards? Click here to download this year’s booklet, outlining the eligibility criteria, questions, dates and the application process.

You must enter one major award category and one industry award category. Business Person of the Year, Employee of the Year and  the Accessible & Inclusive Business Award are all separate applications and you don’t have to enter a major or industry category to qualify.

The judges decide achievement awards based on the full applications for the major and industry categories.  

Can I get advice on my application?

Yes you can! Free information sessions in Bunbury & Busselton will be held where we answer your questions and take you through the entire application process. You are also welcome to book a free appointment with one of our business advisors who will review your submission and give you feedback.
