Regional and State winners are eligible to enter the same category in the subsequent year that they have won, up to a maximum of three consecutive years. If the same organisation or person wins the same category at either the Regional or State awards three years in a row, they will be placed in the Hall of Fame for that category. The organisation or person who is placed in the Hall of Fame will then be excluded from entry into that category at both Regional and State for the next two consecutive years. 

Each category is judged by a panel of up to three judges that are selected from subject matter experts, Business Award program partners or Business NSW and My Business executive management. Each entry is judged individually with all three judges scores averaged to achieve the final score.
