After a tough judging process, we are excited to share the finalists who are now in the running for a trophy in their category in this year’s Awards.

“The feedback we’ve had from the Business NSW judging team was amazing, and they’ve said it was an inspiring process this year to see so many outstanding businesses who had taken the time to enter. They acknowledged, as we do, that it’s been a tough year for everyone, but local businesses have persevered, kept their business open, and not only that, have excelled in their category” said Chamber President, Ellen Kronen.

Certificates are waiting for delivery to all finalists but but unfortunately in-person visits have to be postponed for a few days but as soon as restrictions lift, we will be there!

“Business NSW congratulates all of the 2021 Lismore Business Awards Finalists for their outstanding calibre of submissions.  Feedback from our independent judging panels relayed a particularly high scoring number of entrants and with this a challenging judging process.  All finalists should be proud of their tenacity and determination to succeed in the most challenging of times and we look forward to celebrating you and your achievements.” Jane Laverty, Regional Manager Business NSW Northern Rivers.
