Huge celebration of the best of veganism in VegfestUK Awards 2016

Huge celebration of the best of veganism in VegfestUK Awards 2016

2016-08-01 
| by Editor | Posted in Awards

Full categories and nominees for the prestigious VegfestUK Awards 2016, which celebrate the very best of a vegan lifestyle in the UK, have just been announced. There are altogether 16 categories with 10 nominees each vying for the top gong.

 

 

Running since 2007, the awards are the highlight of the year for many vegan businesses, organisations, projects and people, with tens of thousands of votes cast each year. Small vegan businesses and charities especially benefit from the marketing and prestige the awards create, and they have become a much loved and much valued part of the UK vegan community.

 

The VegfestUK Awards organisers added, “With over half a million people identifying as vegan, and half a million veggies actively seeking vegan options, there have been a huge explosion in vegan products, projects and organisations. The VegfestUK awards 2016 reflect both the quality and diversity within the vegan market today, and to be nominated for an award in 2016 is a huge achievement in itself. We expect all categories to be hugely contested”

 

You can cast your vote for your favourites at the link below:

Bi-weekly updates of the awards results will be announced under the “Awards” section on the Vegfest Express online vegan magazine: http://vegfestexpress.co.uk/tabs/awards-3396464 

 

Voting will close at midnight sharp on Friday September 30th 2016.

 

 

The awards results will be announced at the presentation ceremony to be held on Saturday October 22nd 2016 from 3:00 - 4:00pm in the Auditorium, at Level 3 of Olympia London Exhibition Centre, as part of a huge VegfestUK London 2016. Trophies for the awards will be presented by Karin Ridgers, presenter of VeggieVision TV, alongside frontman John Robb of punk rock band Goldblade and singer with The Membranes.

 

The official hashtag for the VegfestUK Awards 2016 is #VegfestUKAwards2016
