Nominations for the Kathryn Mackenzie Award are now open.
The award recognises the dedication and passion of people working professionally or voluntarily in Bendigo's tourism industry.
It also acknowledges their efforts in enhancing Bendigo's reputation as a leading cultural destination.
"We're committed to recognising the people that put our beautiful city on the international stage," Bendigo Tourism Board chairman Finn Vedelsby said.
"Tell us about someone you believe, that has contributed over and above, to improve Bendigo's visitor experience.
"More than 4 million people visited our region in 2018, 83,000 of those being International visitors. Regional cities like Bendigo are one of the major drawcards for the state."
