Winners are decided from qualitative analysis of the comments from your customers.
You need to submit your entry before your customers can post a review.
To be eligible to enter the North of England Wedding Awards you must have premises in or provide your services from home to customers in Yorkshire or North East England.
You must supply the wedding industry in one of the 18 categories listed. You may enter into more than one category.
You may enter as either a new business or under one of the trading business categories. Not as a trading business AND a new business.
Entries may be taken from individual stores or outlets, therefore if your business has two shops and they both enter it is possible that both shops could compete against each other in the final.
Please ensure you enter under the correct categories.
Voting may only be carried out by actual consumers not businesses. The awards are 'peoples choice' and votes will be verified. Only bona fide couples will be permitted to place a review.
Your customers will judge you on demonstrating the following within your business:
- Excellent Service
- Product Quality
- Value for Money
- 'Going the Extra Mile'
Select your category, and the area you would like to be entered in.
Complete the awards entry form online.
Submit your entry.
Closing date for all entries is Friday 28th June 2013.
Once we have received your entry, we will send you a confirmation e-mail and cards to be handed out to your customers detailing how they can vote for you.
Speak to your customers and ask them to review your business.
You will receive the anonymous reviews after the awards.
Each company will receive a score, calculated by adding each vote score together and dividing it by the number of votes received.
We will select highest scoring businesses per category as finalists. These will be announced on Friday 9th August by email to all entrants.
