The South Australian Regional Showcase provides an opportunity to celebrate and promote the achievements of individuals, groups and organisations that have made significant contributions to regional South Australia.

Solstice Media is proud to celebrate regional success with the Regional Showcase program in its 20th year.

The aim of this program is to put a spotlight on regional South Australia by uncovering, telling and showcasing stories of success.

The Regional Showcase program is run annually to celebrate the achievements of individuals, groups and South Australian businesses that have made significant contributions to regional South Australia.

One of the reasons the program has been successful over the years is because it connects our valued regions to the rest of South Australia and the world.

To ensure there is an even spread across the state, the regions counted as part of the program follow the Local Government Association of South Australia boundaries. View the boundaries map here.
