Regional Awards launches in Barossa

The 2015 Regional Awards in the Barossa region was launched last Thursday, with Brand South Australia at Murray Street Vineyards in Greenock.

According to Brand South Australia Events Co-ordinator, Ms Kirrilee Hay, the Regional Awards are a fantastic opportunity to recognise the incredible work of individual people and community groups in regional areas, as well as a way of celebrating success in business.

“The programme has been growing year on year and 2014 achieved a record-breaking success,” she told  The Leader and community leaders in attendance.

“Last year we received 2,346 nominations and 646 entries across South Australia.

“We awarded 259 individuals, organisations and businesses for their contribution to the regions and achieved a massive $1 million of media exposure for the programme.”

Nominations can be made online at www.brandsouthaustralia.com.au and will close Friday, May 1, 2015.

The winners and finalists for 2015 will be announced at presentation evenings in each of the seven regions in October.

For more information on the programme or contact details of past winners please contact Regional Awards Co-ordinator, Ms Kirrilee Hay on kirrilee.hay@brandsouthaustralia.com.au or call (08) 8211 8111.
