VegfestUK Awards 2015: Categories, Nominees, Voting

VegfestUK Awards 2015: Categories, Nominees, Voting

2015-07-21 
| by Editor | Posted in Awards

It’s that time of the year again when we’re sifting through numerous quality vegan products on the markets and campaigns on the horizons and picking out the crème de la crème for our annual VegfestUK Awards, which celebrate the best of the vegan lifestyle right now in the UK.

 

The VegfestUK Awards have come up in leaps and bounds since its inception in 2007. Last year’s Awards saw a total of just over 12,000 votes by individuals all across the UK, and previous Awards Ceremonies involved the participation of distinguished guests such as comedians Dave Spikey and Andrew O’Neill. In 2015, there are altogether 15 categories with 10 nominees each for the Awards – a fitting reflection of the huge growth in the vegan market and growing recognition of the virtues of the vegan lifestyle. Plus, vegan comedian Jake Yapp will be our guest of honour at the Awards Ceremony at VegfestUK London.

 

The VegfestUK Awards are the result of numerous vegan heroes, heroines and companies who have worked so hard in bringing their vegan products/campaigns/services to life – we would simply not have the VegfestUK Awards without not only those who have been nominated, but also those who haven’t but nonetheless have been campaigning for a vegan, cruelty-free world via their own ventures. We give a massive thumbs-up and huge round of applause to all who strive to make a vegan world a reality.
