2023 Business Orange Awards

Thank you to everyone who entered the 2023 Business Orange Awards. Congratulations to all finalists who were ranked by independent judges to be the top submitters of their peers.

The annual Business Orange Awards program is the opportunity for local businesses, their staff and business leaders to be recognised for all their outstanding work. Submissions are sent to a panel of independent judges sourced through Business NSW and are then scored and ranked against assessment criteria based on their submission.

The People’s Choice Awards are nominated and voted on by the people of Orange using a sophisticated online voting system that removes excessive duplication of votes by IP address.

This years awards again demonstrated the effectiveness and integrity of the entry and judging process for the Awards with a diverse range of winners across a broad range of categories. We’d like to congratulate all winners of the 2023 Business Orange Awards, and especially the 2023 Outstanding Business of the Year – Diesel & Blue Doggie Daycare and Grooming!

We again aligned our non industry categories with Business NSW which ensures the winners of those categories will proceed to the Western Regional Business Awards next year to be assessed against the best in the Western Region and we wish all of our winners the best of luck at the next stage.

Entry was free this year for all but will be converting to a “free for members and first time submitters, fee for all others” structure next year.

We had a great time at the 2023 Awards and look forward to welcoming you to the 2024 Business Orange Awards!
