Cloncurry businesses celebrated their night of nights on Thursday at the Community Precinct.
Some 28 businesses nominated for the nine categories in the awards and Cloncurry Local Business Network chair Susan Curley said competition was tough.
MC on the night Bo Scoble said the awards night showcased local business and highlighted what the community was doing to bring prosperity to the town.
The LBN is a sub-committee of Council aimed at recommending actions and initiatives for local business development.
As well as the awards the LBN runs a Christmas Shop Local Campaign, a shop local gift card program, small business week, digital workshops, network events and welcome to town packs.
This year's Christmas Shop Local Campaign begins Monday, November 11.
Guests at the dinner took home a complementary $20 gift card while the winners' trophies were made from core samples from Round Oak's Great Australia mine.
All of the award winners were present on the night except Booth Maintenance and Contracting and QCWA Cloncurry.
Gift and homewear shop Bohemian Dream was the only multiple award winner on the night, taking home two trophies for owner Joelene Gabbert who has run the store for three years.
"I have no idea why I won, I'm really surprised, but I have awesome customers," Ms Gabbert said.
