Local Legends

Celebrate our Local Legends

Local Businesses, Local Individuals, Local Not-for-profits

After over 60 years servicing Fremantle and Perth we have decided it’s time to give back to our amazing community by recognising the hard work of local business, individuals and not-for-profit organisations. Enter, LOCAL LEGENDS!
This initiative gives you the chance to nominate those you think are deserving of this recognition. All you need to do is fill out the form below to nominate them to go in the run to win. Please include any relevant social media handles for your nominee so we can tag them if they win.
Each week we will announce our nominations for the categories before we ‘crown’ an overall winner. There are cash prizes to be won by our weekly and overall winner, plus so much more.
Nominations will remain open until Sunday 24th September.
Nominations are now open! 

There's 10K to be won!


We have so many goodies up for grabs by our winners, with each weekly runner up taking home $2K in cash each and a trip to Rottnest Island on us.

Our overall winner will score $4K in cash and a trip to Rottnest Island on us.

Make sure to nominate yourself or someone you know so they are in the running to win one of these awesome prizes.
