By Alex Gretgrix

TIME is running out to vote for your favourite businesses as part of the 2019 GMCU Allianz Campaspe Murray Business Awards.

The awards aim to celebrate the region's local business achievements and showcase the finest local businesses and the people that make them great.

Tourism, retail, trades, agriculture, professional service and other sectors are among those named as finalists across 11 industry categories.

As well as the industry categories, 2019 also sees the inclusion of the people's choice award, where members of the public can vote for their favourite finalist.

"We have a diverse, energetic commercial community on both sides of the Murray, and the awards nomination process has again showcased the incredible depth of passion that thrives in our local business sector," Campaspe Shire mayor Adrian Weston said.

Category winners and business of the year will be announced at the gala presentation evening on Wednesday, October 9 at Rich River Golf Club.

Voting for the people's choice award closes on Friday, September 6. Full details are available at the business awards website at
