This year’s Regional Showcase is presented by Solstice Media, publisher of InDaily, SALIFE, CityMag and The Lead, after the closure of Brand South Australia, which had run the program for many years.
The program, which shines a spotlight on the regions by uncovering and sharing success stories about businesses, communities and individuals is supported by major program partner Primary Industries and Regions SA.
Over the past year, with the support of a team of regional journalists, the Regional Showcase has produced 90 stories about interesting businesses, community initiatives and individuals in regional South Australia.
The top 30 has been decided by a combination of reach and impact and the community has the opportunity for vote for their favourite, which will receive the People’s Choice Award.
Solstice Media editorial director David Washington said the local media company decided to take on the Regional Showcase program from Brand SA, which ended operations earlier in the year, because Solstice wanted to tell more stories from a regional perspective.
“Regional South Australia is not only the centre of much of the state’s economic activity, it’s also where some of the state’s most interesting community projects are happening,” he said.
The Regional Showcase awards – People’s Choice, Community Award and Business Award – will be announced at a celebration event on Friday, October 11, at Maggie Beer’s The Farm Eatery in the Barossa.
The final 30 stories can be found here – there’s a link in each story to the voting form.
