Announcing the 2014 Ryde City Local Business Awards

Ryde Business Forum is delighted to announce that the Ryde City Local Business Awards will be launched in May 2014. The awards will recognise outstanding businesses in a variety of industry categories. It is a program that involves the local community in many ways. Businesses are nominated by their customers, with the most popular becoming finalists in this high-profile program.

The Northern District Times will be the official newspaper for the Awards.

How it works

  1. The public nominate their favourite businesses. Nomination forms will be distributed throughout the business community, and customers may nominate registered businesses online.
  2. After the close of entries, the most popular businesses are selected as finalists.
  3. Finalists are invited to submit additional information about their business.
  4. Finalists are visited by anonymous judges who evaluate the service experience offered.
  5. The winners are determined based on the additional information and the judges’ feedback

Presentation evening

Winners will be announced at the Ryde City Local Business Awards Presentation Evening.
