We've had 205 nominations for this year's Paint & Panel Bodyshop Awards which is a new record. Having taken a quick look at the entries it seems Queensland has the least nominations. We know there are many great shops in the Sunshine state so come on, don't be shy, put your hands up and enter now. We're also planning on visiting Canberra this year so some more nominations for the capital would be great too.
Nominations close this Friday 31 May.
We'll be selecting shops for judging early next week and getting in touch with the selected shops to arrange a time to visit. In the meantime look out for an email from Survey Monkey where we ask all the nominated shops to confirm they want to take part and to tell us what category their shop is in.
All the state winners will be featured in the September issue of the magazine with the best practice winners and national winners profiled in our November magazine.
The awards are presented at a glittering industry dinner, this year at Melbourne's Arts Centre on October 11.
Good luck to everyone who has been nominated and thank to our sponsors who make these awards possible.
