Isn’t the pride and glory of being a Chevrons winner enough?
Just kidding... Each winner goes home with a rad wooden Chevrons trophy – pop it up on your bar, your bathroom shelf, or wave it in the face of haters everywhere you go.
Awards winners will also get a Chevrons window decal for you to proudly display at your establishment.
Nominations open Monday, 9 July at 7.00pm and close on Sunday, 29 July 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!

You're welcome to nominate yourself for a Chevron - we think you’re pretty great too.
Remember: The finalists of the Chevrons are the top three people/businesses in each category who receive the MOST NOMINATIONS in their category. So, after you've nominated yourself, be sure to rally all of your peers in the industry to nominate you too.
See 'Who can fill out a nomination form? ' for more details on nominations.
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.
Nah, mate! The Chevrons nominations are open to all members of the industry, whether you are a member of RANZ or not.
However, it does pay to be a member of the Restaurant Association, because all members this year get a discounted ticket price to the awards night (whoop whoop!).

You can vote for your favourite (from the three finalists in each category) online from Wednesday, 1 August from 7.00pm.
