Voting Rules & Regulations

Thank you for taking the time to nominate and vote for our Hospitality Superstars in this year’s Hawkes Bay Hospitality Awards.. There are just a few rules in place to make sure everyone has a fair chance.

A reminder that nominations are open to industry members ONLY – you will be asked to specify your workplace and position to verify you are an industry member.

There’s some fancy industry wizardry (with robots and humans) to ensure there’s no funny business with the votes. In addition to that though, there are just a few rules in place to make sure it’s fair to everyone.

  • Nominations must be made and received no later than 5.00pm Sunday, 2 July;
  • The top four nominees in each category (our ‘finalists’) will be announced on Monday, 10 July;
  • Voting opens for these finalists (industry only) from 10.00am Tuesday, 11 July until 5.00pm Sunday, 30 July when voting closes.
  • Finalists will be contacted with further details.
This is an industry only event. Hospitality employees, establishment owners and suppliers to the industry are permitted to vote.

You must be a Hawke’s Bay based owner or employee in the hospitality industry to take part in the nomination process. If you are based outside of Hawkes Bay Region you are not permitted to complete a nomination form.

  • Once! Each industry member can fill out one nomination form per person;
  • Establishments can submit a maximum of five nomination forms, this means only five staff from your workplace can vote;
  • No individual is entitled to nominate yourself or the establishment you work for.
  • There is no restriction on the number of categories you need to nominate/vote for, but it is preferable for you to nominate/vote in 7 or more categories.
