McLaren Vale Business Awards - Nominations now Open!

McLaren Vale Business Awards

Each year the McLaren Vale Business & Tourism Association conducts local business awards for all our members. These awards are a fantastic way to celebrate our members.

The process involves nominations under various categories. Anyone can nominate. Once all nominations have been received, every business that has been nominated has the opportunity to submit their award application.

Applications are all judged on merit by an independent panel of judges. The judges decide on three finalists in each category, and they withhold their decision of WINNER until the announcement is made at the Gala Awards Presentation Evening.

While dates vary from year to year, the process of nomination usually begins in July-August and the Gala Presentation is usually in October.
