Cream of the crop in line Jessica Pollock, the 2007 Apprentice of the Year, works at Trendy Cuts at Rhodes Shopping Centre. THE Inner-West Weekly is looking for the cream of local business. And we need your help. The 2008 TrueLocal Business Awards will recognise and reward outstanding local business achievements and acknowledge the commitment of sponsors to business and the community in the Inner West. Presented by Cumberland Newspapers, publishers of the Inner-West Weekly, the business awards are sponsored by Vodafone, with local sponsors Rhodes Shopping Centre and Strathfield Council. The program is all about local businesses and local communities. So we're calling on you -- local residents -- to nominate your favourite businesses and help make this 15th year of the awards the biggest and best yet. If you deal with a business that deserves to be recognised as as one of the best in our area, we want to hear about it. And just by nominating and voting for your favourite business, you could win a weekend for two at the Crowne Plaza, Terrigal. Inner-West Weekly editor Robyn Ainsworth said the paper was proud to host the highly successful program again. Ms Ainsworth said the Inner West was awash with business achievers and innovators, and it was an honour to have the chance to recognise those businesses. ''The 2007 awards rewarded business finalists, sponsors and the wider local community,'' she said. ''We are confident that this year's awards program will be even bigger and better.'' The awards incorporate three phases -- community choice, busi- ness comment and the mystery shopper report. The feedback provided through the nomination and transparent judging process allows businesses to grow and improve. This year, businesses can pre- register their details at www.true localbusinessawards.com.au or by calling the Business Awards Hotline on 9689 5155. Inner-West Weekly manager Chris Flourentzou said nomi- nations would determine which businesses would be finalists. Each of the finalist businesses will be able to showcase itself through a questionnaire devised in collaboration with the NSW State and Regional Development Department. Finalists will also be assessed by a mystery shopper. The business with the highest score after all three phases of the awards program will be declared the winner of their section. There's a nomination coupon on Page 24 in this edition of the Inner- West Weekly. Beachside luxury CROWNE Plaza Terrigal is 90 minutes from Sydney and seconds from Terrigal Beach.
