Anyone! The awards night is a celebration of the industry as a whole. We encourage people from all sides of the industry to come along.
Tickets are $70 per person ($65 for RANZ members) and include an open bar and canapés.
PLEASE NOTE - Ticket numbers are strictly limited (due to venue capacity) so avoid missing out buy purchasing your tickets early.
We know you’re a bunch of big cheeses, but unfortunately no finalists get free tickets to the awards night, sorry!

We’ll be popping a few bottles of champers, so yes - the awards evening on Monday 30 October is R18 only.
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.
Plus - all of the Supreme Award winners are also invited to make a thank you speech at the event, and are awarded a marketing package post-event to promote their success following the awards (feat. a Go Media Digital Billboard... each! We kid you not).
See 'Who is eligible to win the Supreme Awards?' for more info about the Supreme Awards.
Nominations open Wednesday 16 August at 6am and are open for 4.5 weeks. Nominations close Friday 15 September at 5pm.
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 three nomination forms each!
We thought you might ask that...
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 three 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 need to rally your peers for nominations during the 4.5 week nomination period (16 August - 15 September).
Encourage all of your industry peers to nominate you across that time - the top three people/establishments in each category with the MOST NOMINATIONS become the finalists.
Chocolate bribes are all very well and good, but a bit of honest talent does help.
Once nominations close on Friday 15 September at 5pm, the nominations are collated and the top three people/businesses in each category (with the most nominations) are selected.
These finalists (three per category) will be announced on Wednesday 20 September via the Chevrons Facebook Page.
You can vote for your favourite (from the three finalists in each category) online from Wednesday 20 September at 6am.
Voting closes on Friday 20 October at 5pm.
Same rules apply for the voting form as they do the nomination form.
