Nominations open Tuesday, 16 July at 7.00pm and close on Sunday, 4 August at 5.00pm.
Anyone working in the Canterbury hospitality industry can fill out a nomination form. The ‘industry’ encompasses all owners and workers at hospitality establishments and their direct suppliers. If you are unsure whether you are eligible to submit a nomination form, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
You are asked to give your name, email address, position and company name when submitting your nomination form.
The nomination period is a ‘free-for all’. You may nominate whomever you like in each category.
When completing the online nomination form - you can cast a nomination in as many, or as little categories as you like.
To keep it fair, each establishment can only complete five nomination forms each!
We thought you might ask that...
You can nominate your colleagues you work with BUT to keep it fair, you cannot nominate yourself or the establishment you work for.
You may only submit five nomination forms, per business. Any forms submitted following that will be disregarded and you’ll get a slap on the wrist for being cheeky. See 'Who can fill out a nomination form?' for more details.
The Canterbury Hospitality Awards nominations are open to all members of the industry, whether you are a member of the Restaurant Association or not.
