Vote for the Best of Kunming Awards 2014

By in Features on

Voting is now officially underway for the Best of Kunming Awards 2014. Beginning today and running through December 31, readers can choose their favorite Kunming businesses and establishments.

From December 2 until December 15, GoKunming readers nominated their preferred venues in ten categories. Below are the five places that 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 2013.

How to vote

Voting for 2014 is open to registered GoKunming users. Place your votes here or follow the links below. If you do not yet have a GoKunming account, you can sign up by registering here. Each person 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 January 2 and the second annual Best of Kunming Awards Ceremony will be held shortly thereafter. The evening will feature a show recognizing the winners in each category, speeches by award recipients and live music. More details are coming soon and will be posted in the comments section below.
