Celebrating local business success in Waitaki.

The awards process takes place over the months of June and July.  Please nominate your favourite business after viewing the “Discover Businesses” list (at the bottom of the page), and then select the applicable category when completing the nomination form. Any business that’s been operating for less than three years can be nominated in the New or Emerging category and may not be listed in the discover business button.
