Given the challenges of 2020 Mainstreet SA was encouraged by the response to our annual Awards program. Unfortunately, we were prevented from gathering in person to present our 2020 Awards, with the Awards Breakfast a casualty of the COVID-19 pandemic. As an alternative, you will find below a series of short videos that highlight the excellent work of our Awards finalists and announce the winners. You can also read about all of our finalists and the category winners in our Awards Booklet.
