Towns who nominated were required to meet 37 essential criteria to secure a finalist position. Each town was assessed on several pieces of work, such as an itinerary, video submission, editorial article, and their strategic plan for growing tourism in their region. The Shire focused on producing a submission that captured the "REAL" aspects of Carnarvon and Coral Bay; something local, with local people and local experiences. We highlighted places and people in our town that resonate with what visitors are looking for when they come to Carnarvon and Coral Bay. The Shire produced the marketing campaign, editorial articles and video content in house. "Our community will be pleased with the success of Carnarvon and Coral Bay in the tourism town awards" stated Shire President Eddie Smith, "it's fantastic to see our beautiful towns recognised". Congratulations to Exmouth which was awarded gold in the small tourism town category and Upper Gascoyne and Shark Bay who were also finalists in this year’s tiny tourism town awards. The Shire of Carnarvon is delighted see all four Shires in the Gascoyne Region excel in these awards, highlighting the Gascoyne Region as a must visit destination.
