Over the past 12 months Brand South Australia and its pool of journalists have uncovered the stories of success from all pockets of our thriving regional communities.
We interviewed outback police officers, teen entrepreneurs, knifemakers, bakery owners, gin distillers and fashion designers, publishing more than 100 royalty free Regional Showcase stories here on Brand SA News.
Now it’s your turn to tell us which 2018 Regional Showcase story you liked the best and which regional business, community group or individual deserves to take out the People’s Choice Award in October.
The Top 30 Regional Showcase stories are now open for public vote from today (August 1) until August 31.
Head to regionalshowcase.live to vote and go in the running to win a range of prizes including a $200 Foodland voucher, VIP Royal Adelaide Show tickets, and all-inclusive return tickets to the Balaklava Cup.
The Top 30 Regional Showcase list is based on story reach and popularity.
The story that receives the most public votes will be announced the winner of the 2018 Regional Showcase People’s Choice Award on October 26 at a statewide celebration evening at The Bend Motorsport Park in Tailem Bend.
Two other Regional Showcase awards – selected by program stakeholders – will also be presented.
“The regions are such a vital part of the state, and we are honoured to share these stories online throughout the year to our diverse audience,” says Brand South Australia CEO Karen Raffen.
“With the online voting now open, readers can choose who they think deserves to be recognised, encouraging even broader engagement across our state.”
Head here to cast your vote for the People’s Choice Award.
The 2018 Regional Showcase is presented by Brand South Australia and supported by Primary Industries and Regions SA.
The Regional Showcase program is ongoing, meaning we’re still on the hunt for great yarns from SA’s regional towns. Have an idea? Click on the link below.
