Time In’s editors have compiled a list of nominees and now we are throwing it open to the public to vote on the winnersWe’re giving away 24 awards in five categories: Food; Drink; Arts and Museums; Entertainment; and Homebound Heroes.

Vote now, and not only could you win a Lockdown Prize Pack, the award winners will have the kudos of a Time In Award to help their business rebound. Can't see your choice in the nominee list? You can add in your own nominee – and they can still win the award if enough people vote for them.

The Prize Pack you stand to win is worth $400 and includes $300 in beer and merch from Moon Dog plus $100 of product from hip uniform makers Cargo Crew, including a denim tote, two tea towels, and two aprons with name personalisation.

Last day of voting is Sunday May 31. The awards will be given away during a virtual livestreamed ceremony on Instagram Live at 7pm on Tuesday June 2. Read our list of nominees below and head to the voting site to cast your vote.
