Business awards

Waverley's Brightest and Best Local Business Awards recognise, promote and reward the contribution by local businesses towards making Waverley a dynamic and economically vital place to live, work and shop.

The awards are open to all Waverley businesses large and small, retail and non-retail, and all entries are assessed against their industry peers. All Waverley businesses, whether large or small, located in a commercial centre or village or in a home, are eligible to enter and nominate themselves for some well deserved recognition.

Through these awards, Waverley Council recognises the importance of a sustainable business community that is vibrant and robust and supports the creation of jobs and business opportunities.

We regret to advise that the 2020 Brightest & Best Business Awards has been postponed

The Business Awards evening has become one of Waverley's biggest celebrations for local business and while Council would like to bring everyone together for a celebratory event, we are mindful not to take any risks in light of current health restrictions.

However, Council looks forward to planning a sensational Brightest & Best Business Awards night in 2021, where we can truly celebrate the resilience of our wonderful small business community.

In the meantime, Council is working on a number of other initiatives to support our local businesses. Commencing in mid October, Keep It Local (an initiative formed by Waverley Council and the Bondi & Districts Chamber of Commerce) will launch a  'Local Legends' competition, aimed at encouraging residents to vote for their favourite businesses across the Waverley LGA. More details on this will made available shortly via social media and the Keep It Local website
