Casey Business Awards 2022


Casey Business Awards 2022

The Casey Business Awards are back, showcasing what enterprising companies who call Casey home have to offer in Innovation, Employment, Sustainability and Business Leadership.

Council’s annual business awards are a premier event to celebrate and recognise inspirational local businesses. They also provide local businesses with an opportunity to pause and reflect on recent achievements and success in their business. The awards are open to all businesses located in the City of Casey municipality.

The 2022 awards will shine a light on the efforts of our local businesses, both large and small, in three categories. A first for the awards, there is also a standalone category that celebrates the efforts of an individual’s outstanding leadership in a bid for the community to honour their collective achievements and contributions to the community and Casey’s economy.

2022 Award Categories

*NOTE: Entrants can apply for one category in each stream below simultaneously. In addition to category winners, Judges will also select a Casey Business of the Year 2022.

Four categories are split in two streams:
