The Shoalhaven Business Awards is the region’s most anticipated annual business event.

Just by entering the Awards you are giving yourself the opportunity to review your business operations, reconnect with your vision and strategy, and measure performance against objectives. Many entrants see the Awards as a time for forced self-assessment, which helps keep them accountable to their goals.

You are also giving yourself the opportunity to represent the Shoalhaven in the Illawarra Business Awards, and as we have seen in the past, the State Awards (if you enter an aligned category).


Entries for the 2024 Shoalhaven Business Awards 2024 are now open.

We have 15 awards this year which you can directly enter.

And all winners are also in the running for the coveted Business of the Year award.
