Voting and Deadlines for the 8th British Kebab Awards (2020)

How does voting work?

It does not cost a penny to enter the British Kebab Awards. The awards are all about recognising the best kebab takeaways and restaurants for everything they’ve done for the British economy and it’s as simple as that.

You can vote here.

How does the point-system work?

Every vote from a member of the public is worth 2 points. For example, if a business is nominated by 100 people then they will collect 200 points.

If a kebab business receives a vote from a member of parliament, mayor or local councilor then they will be eligible to collect 250 points. These must be sent to us directly from the elected official to allow us to verify authenticity.

Further points will be allocated according to the Food Standard Agency ratings of the business, with a rating of 4 giving 200 points and a rating of 5 giving 250 points. 

When does voting close?

The first round of voting will close on Friday, 31st January 2020. The shortlist will then be drawn up from the top nominees in each category and announced on Tuesday, 4th February for the final round of voting.

Voting will finally close on Monday, 24th February prior to the concluding judges meeting ahead of our awards ceremony – full details here.

How will the judges select winners?

The judges panel oversee the process and assess nominated businesses by conducting discreet visits and undertaking a variety of inquiries regarding the nominated business.

Judges include industry experts and politicians, and nominations are taken from the public, local politicians and kebab businesses. See our current Judges here.

The business that collects the most points will win an award in their category.
