The Business 3000+ Awards is Melbourne’s premier Awards Program for small and medium size businesses. Since 2004, the Business 3000+ Awards have been recognising and celebrating the endeavours and achievements of independent businesses located within the City of Melbourne that contribute to the commercial success and unique, vibrant fabric of the City.

Throughout the year, Business 3000+ Awards hosts the Inspiration Breakfast Series, Business Insights and other targeted business events for Melbourne’s small business community to connect, be inspired and learn.

The Business 3000+ Awards provide an ideal opportunity for businesses to reflect and showcase their achievements to the broader Melbourne business community.  Individuals and businesses can self-nominate or nominate another City of Melbourne business that is performing well in a particular area.

There are five Award categories that entrants can nominate for.  The entry process is straightforward, with a written response to the Judging Criteria.  Nominations open in August with submissions due in late October.  The 2014 Business 3000+ Awards Ceremony will be held in November 2014.
