Gyprocker Awards announced
This year’s ‘I’m a Gyprocker’ Awards drew over 200 entries from Gyprocker contractors all over the country.
Entrants were asked to submit their work and a selfie. Over 9,000 votes were cast to award the People’s Choice winners while the other winners were selected by a panel of the 2018 award winners.
The campaign aims to recognise and reward the great work that Australia’s craftsmen do with Gyprock products. The social media based campaign saw entrants receiving over one million views.
Regional winners were announced at award ceremonies in Suncorp Stadium, Optus Stadium, Marvel Stadium and Bank West Stadium.
CSR Lightweight Systems general manager of marketing Troy Green says: “The 2019 Gyprocker Awards returned to celebrate the industry, quality craftsmanship and the pride that plasterers take in their work.
