ENTRIES are open for Wanneroo Business Association’s 15th annual awards.

The 2018 City of Wanneroo Business Awards categories recognise trades services, start ups, home-based businesses, customer service, tourism and hospitality.

Diane Hedges, of Authentic Additions, said entering the awards last year was the biggest business lessons of her career to date.

“It re-iterated the things we do day in, day out, without even thinking about it, and just simply assuming everyone knows about it,” she said.

“It has compounded our goals and values as a family, a partnership, and a business.”

Business liaison officer Lauren Bell encouraged any business based within the City of Wanneroo to enter the awards, a free process that could provide “priceless” exposure to finalists.

Sponsors for the November 16 awards at True North Church in Merriwa include the City of Wanneroo, Ertech Holdings, Landcorp, Creative Catering, ECU School of Business and Law, Wanneroo Times, The Marina Mindarie and Burning Fruit.

Entries are open until October 29 – visit awards.wanneroobusiness.com to enter.
