IT is not too late to enter your Bathurst business or favourite employee in the 2018 Peak Connect Carillon Business Awards.

Entries will remain open until July 31 and there are 19 categories this year.

Business awards sub committee marketing co-ordinator Simone Townsend said entering the awards has been simplified.

In previous years there were many more questions and business owners were required to include details on their annual turnover.

“It’s quite sensitive information and businesses didn’t want to provide that,” Ms Townsend said.

However, there is now just one entry form with an option to save and continue later.

“There’s a generic set of questions about your business and then one specific question to the category you have entered,” Ms Townsend said.

She said the new format has completely changed the way businesses can access the awards.

“The smallest of businesses or the largest of businesses can enter and it’s easy enough for a small mum and dad business to enter,” Ms Townsend said.

A Peak Connect Carillon Business Awards finalist night will be held on September 18, followed by a gala night on October 26.
