What is the voting stage?
An updated form will go live from October 6 to October 31, 2016 after we’ve collated all nominations, which signifies the start of the voting phase. We’ll email everyone who has nominated, to let them know voting is live. This is the time to get behind your favorite local venues and encourage others to vote for them. You can only vote for one venue per category, but you can vote for venues in other areas. Venues will get through to the shortlist based on the number of nominations. The venues with the highest number of nominations will get through. A category must have a minimum of three nominated venues to make it through and a category can only have a maximum of 10 venues. If a category has less than three venues nominated, the whole category for that area will be removed.
I’m not listed for voting even though we were nominated. Why?
Only 10 venues from each category and area make it through to voting stage. This means that if your venue didn’t receive as many nominations as other venues in your area/category you won’t show up in the voting section shortlists.
I’m a venue and I think we’re in the wrong category or area. What do I do?
Unfortunately, at voting stage your category or area cannot be changed.
‘There are not enough venues nominated in this category’ – what does this message mean?
In order for a category to proceed to the voting stage, there needs to be three or more venues nominated. If that doesn’t happen, unfortunately we’re unable to host voting stage for that particular category and/or area.
Can you send me some posters/a promotional pack please?
We’ve already sent out our promotional packs and are unable to re-send, but if you’d like to download the assets and print yourself, you can do so here.
I need a logo or an image to use on social media?
You can find this on our assets page, please click here.
Can I find out how many votes I received?
We don’t release the number of nominations or votes received per venue at any stage during the campaign.
Does the ‘love it’ count on my venue page correspond to the number of votes I’ve received?
No, it doesn’t.
Winners reveal and party
The venues with the most votes will then be presented at the Reveal stage as ‘Winner’ and ‘Runner-up’ on November 14. There can only be one winner and one runner-up per category, per area. Winning venues will be showcased in Time Out magazine and on the Time Out website in November, as well as joining us for a winners’ party in November.
