ETHNIC BUSINESS AWARDS OPEN FOR NOMINATIONS

19 July 2010

Nominations are now open for the 22nd Ethnic Business Awards 2010, Nationals Member for Lismore Thomas George said today. The Awards honour the contribution of migrants to Australia’s business and cultural landscape, recognising innovation, application and excellence in small and large business.

A new award category introduced this year is the Indigenous in Business Award. This new award aims to aid in reconciliation and promote the advancement of indigenous Australians.

Judges include Warren Mundine, Don Argus, Eve Crestani, Allan Gyngell AO, Dr Ziggy Switkowski and Carla Zampatti AC AM.

Closing date for this year’s Awards, which will be presented in Perth for the first time ever, is Monday 16 August 2010.

“These awards help celebrate and reward business success in this vast and culturally diverse country in which we all live,” Mr George said.

“I urge you to help by identifying worthy nominees and encourage both ethnic and indigenous Australians in business to nominate for these Awards.”
