Voting is now officially underway for the Best of Kunming Awards 2013. Beginning today and running through December 30, readers can vote for their favorite Kunming businesses and venues.
From November 29 until December 11, GoKunming readers nominated their favorite businesses in ten categories. Below are the five businesses who received the most nominations in each group. Those nominees are joined by last year's winners, making for a grand total of six businesses in each category. Nominees are limited to one category, except in the case of Salvador's Coffee House, which won two awards in 2012.
Voting is open to registered GoKunming users. Place your votes here. If you are not yet a GoKunming user, you can sign up by registering a new account. Each user is allowed only one ballot, so make sure your form is fully filled out before you submit it.
Voting can also be completed by following GoKunming's WeChat Official Account and then sending us a message with your votes. Get started by scanning the accompanying QR Code with your mobile device or search for GoKunming in WeChat's 'official accounts'. Include the name of the category as well as the title of the business for which you are voting.
Results will be announced on the website December 31 and the inaugural Best of Kunming Awards Ceremony will be held January 6. The evening will feature a show recognizing the winners in each category, live music and the unveiling of GoKunming's site redesign. More details are coming soon and will be posted in the comments section below.
