When can the public vote for my establishment?

The I Love FOOD Awards voting opens on January 13 and closes on Saturday 22 March.

Can I promote The I Love FOOD Awards in my venue?

Establishments have the opportunity to drive public votes through promotion and marketing campaigns. However, establishments are not allowed to generate votes by offering any kind of incentives (including any discounts, gift, prizes or subsidies) specifically for voting for their establishment. Establishments that are found to have done so may, at the Promoter’s sole discretion, be disqualified from receiving an Award Prize. 

How can I promote the I Love FOOD Awards?

• Download and display your I Love Food Awards assets in your venue
• Add a voting message to the bottom of receipts and menus
• Tell customers about mobile voting on your table top material
• Add voting messages and I Love FOOD Award logo to staff aprons and t-shirts
• Encourage your customers to vote with links on your email newsletters
• Promote the Awards on your facebook page
• Tweet about the awards on Twitter

How can the public vote for my establishment?

There are several ways a patron can vote for you while dining in your restaurant.

  1. Scan your unique QR code

    Your patrons can log on to www.lifestyle.com.au/vote using their mobile and hit ‘Restaurants Near Me’ to find you and vote. Your patrons can scan a QR Code that will automatically take them to your unique voting page on their mobile.

  2. Enter your unique restaurant code

    Your patrons can visit www.lifestyle.com.au/vote on their mobile devices and enter your restaurant’s unique code to vote. 

  3. Hit restaurants near me

    Your patrons can log on to www.lifestyle.com.au/vote using their mobile and hit ‘Restaurants Near Me’ to find you and vote. 

Can a chain or franchise establishment win an I Love FOOD Award? 

Establishments that form part of a chain or franchise (two or more establishments with the same    trading-name) will not have their votes tallied together. Each outlet will be counted as a single establishment. Should a chain or franchise have the most Overall Votes, the next independent establishment will be entitled to receive The National Overall Favourite. Chains and franchises can win for their respective category.

Can an establishment win in more than one category?

Establishments can only win in one category (excluding National Overall Favourite which can win the Overall and Favourite Category). Should an Establishment be voted the winner in more than one category, it is at LifeStyle FOOD’s discretion to decide the most relevant category for that Establishment to win.
