We are excited to be hosting the Whanganui Regional Business Awards this year. These high-profile awards celebrate excellence, innovation and creativity in the business and community sectors, and are a major highlight of Whanganui’s business calendar. Our Awards Categories recognise different forms of excellence and embrace the different ages and stages of business. We also have a Community Contribution category for not for profit, charitable and social enterprise entries.

Any business, incorporated society, or charity of any size in our region is eligible to enter and there is no charge for entry. For businesses, being an awards entrant offers practical opportunities beyond profile and the recognition of peers; the entry and judging processes also provide the opportunity to benchmark and gain expert advice on how as a business you can continue to grow and improve.

Entries are professionally managed and treated as confidential and private. Our judging programme is independent and impartial and run by knowledgeable and experienced business leaders.
