Magnificent Mudgee Business Awards 2020

The Mudgee Chamber of Commerce (MCC) is thrilled to be presenting to the Mudgee region business community some special recognition awards – the Magnificent Mudgee Business Awards 2020.

We all agree, 2020 really did not turn out as expected – with bushfires dramatically affecting our community during summer and, on the coat-tails of that, COVID-19 and the whirlwind of change that came along with it. In order to survive, local businesses had to adapt and change the ways they operated, with some completely closing for weeks on end.

Subsequently – businesses became creative in order to overcome these effects of the pandemic.

With the Magnificent Mudgee Business Awards, the MCC would like to celebrate and showcase the magnificence of businesses locally, businesses who have pivoted, adapted and even thrived despite the many challenges 2020 has brought.

There are nine awards categories, with voting as simple as visiting MCC’s new website. Voting opened on the 1st November and closes on the 27th.

Award categories include:

– Hospitality, entertainment & tourism
– Health, wellbeing & lifestyle
– Trades & construction
– Wine, agriculture & rural
– Retail
– Community & volunteer services
– Personal & professional services
– Entrepreneur
– Other – if nominee does not fit in with any of the above categories.

The finalists in each category will be invited to attend an awards function at Augustine’s on December 8th, with MC Mr Ken Sutcliffe presiding. This will be a much-needed chance to connect and celebrate the year and spread some Christmas cheer, while abiding by current COVID requirements.

Tickets for this evening event will be available to local business community on the Eventbrite from mid-November.
