THE finalists of the 2014 Sydney Hills Local Business Awards have been selected.
The theme for awards is We're Here For You, which recognises the positive impact local business and communities have on one another.
But while businesses will be contacted in the coming week, the real judging process begins.
Judging is carried out anonymously and is based upon the fundamental principles key to a quality service experience; the delivery of outstanding personal service, value for money relative to product or service quality, merchandising and presentation of services, and the presentation of staff and business facilities.
Additional information submitted by the finalist business will also influence the selection of winners.
Customer references and testimonials are also welcome as an accompaniment to this information.
Customers can submit written testimonials in support of their local businesses and the opinion of the public concerning their local businesses is valuable in the judging process.
The major sponsors of the awards are The Hills Council and Black Nova Digital, with support sponsors Castle Towers, Westfield North Rocks, Stockland Baulkham Hills, Castle Hill RSL, Sydney Hills Business Chamber and Rouse Hill Town Centre.
The News will list the names of all category finalists as a part of the special finalist feature in coming weeks.
