The London Lifestyle Awards are designed to acknowledge publicly nominated businesses who have been deemed to be successfully contributing to the lifestyle of Londoners. After an initial nomination period, a short list is announced and members of the public can vote for their winner. Each October category winners are announced.
The London Lifestyle Awards Wikipedia
The London Lifestyle Awards were created in 2010 by Jason Gale. The mission was to honour those whose work has been understood as making a noticeable contribution to the London lifestyle scene and improving the lives of fellow Londoners.
There are currently 16 categories.
Both businesses and the general public can nominate online on the London Lifestyle Awards website. After submission each nomination is vetted for eligibility. After nominees have been determined, a panel of judges decide the short list which are announced at a 'shortlist party'. The following day voting re-opens to the public, and those receiving the highest number of votes become finalists whom are invited to the London Lifestyle Awards' annual ceremony where the winners are announced.
In 2012 4,127 businesses and personalities were initially nominated, with 202 shortlisted for the final stage of the competition. In total 207,006 votes were cast during the 2012 voting period.
The venue changes regularly but is always London based.
