CELEBRATE the success of small businesses in Broome.
ENCOURAGE business to innovate and plan for the future.
PUBLICIZE the opportunities of doing business in Broome.

Local businesses are the backbone of Broome’s economy and the Awards offer an important opportunity to showcase their achievements and capabilities.

There are many operators in Broome creating, innovating and succeeding, and this is a great opportunity to celebrate these businesses, and inspire others to do the same.

All Businesses in Broome are eligible to enter and successful entrants will enjoy significant publicity and accolade for their achievements. There is no cost to enter.

Finalists and Winners will be announced at the Gala Awards: a glamorous evening where guests will enjoy a three course dinner and beverage package followed by live entertainment and dancing until late.

This year’s Gala Awards will be held at the Broome Civic Centre and we will be stepping back in time to the Rocking 50s era – so dig out your poodle skirts, bobby sox, leather jackets, slicked-back hair and put on your best dancing shoes!


The questions in the written component have been simplified this year allowing the majority of judging to take place at the applicants place of business.

A representative from the 2021 winning businesses, along with representatives from the Event Sponsor and other key Broome business leaders, will be invited to judge this year’s entries according to their winning category or experience within a certain industry.
