How does it work?

Our awards are based on nominations, votes and then a judging panel. We check out your reviews, websites, branding and overall business visibility and add this to how much love you get from your biggest fans.

First stage of the awards is to get nominated. Once nominated using the form below, you will be entered into the awards. You need to be a member of The Celebrant Directory to go through to the next stage so jump on in and sign up to be in with the chance of winning.

Second stage is to grab some votes from your biggest fans. Shout far and wide and get those votes in. The top 5 celebrants for each category will be chosen and will go through to third stage.

Third stage is the judging panel. Our judges will review your web presence. They will read your reviews, look at your branding and website and will be guided not on how many votes you received but how much love you got in your nomination forms.

From here, the winners of each category will be revealed!
