With a wide range of categories to suit every kind of business, the Local Business Awards reward the community's best businesses.

Finalists are selected based on the number of nominations they receive in their category, with the most popular businesses chosen following a judging process. The winners receive a certificate and an invitation to the Local Business Awards Gala Presentation Evening. 

Inclusion Award

The City of Ryde recognises achievements in embracing inclusion. The Inclusion Award celebrates local businesses that welcome people of all backgrounds and abilities.

A business may be inclusive if it provides products or services in a way that accommodates the diverse needs of customers and staff, so that more people can participate.

To be eligible for this award, businesses must operate in the City of Ryde local government area. They must also demonstrate a commitment to creating a welcoming and inclusive environment for customers and staff, and demonstrate how the business is adopting inclusive practices that go above and beyond.

How to Nominate a Business for the Inclusion Award

Nominations are welcome from everyone in the community. Customers can nominate an inclusive business and provide examples to support their nomination.

Business owners and staff can also nominate their business. Self-nominations must include specific examples of their inclusive approach in their business delivery and customer service.

To nominate your business or another business for the 2022 Inclusion Award, download the nomination form and return by email or post. Details are provided on the form.

Nominations closed on Wednesday 2 November 2022 for the Inclusion Award.
