Why participate?

1). These awards can raise the credibility of your business, its brand and its products. The FNZCCI French-New Zealand People’s Choice Awards are designed to increase visibility for your business as the winner for each category is the one who has won the most votes*. A business award win acts as a third-party endorsement for your business, a sign of quality for potential customers.

2). Benefit from a communication campaign on the FNZCCI and FNZCCI partner media platforms. We will create content on what you do best and encourage our community to visit your venue and try your products

*quality criteria apply.

How do the awards work?

1). After you register, our team reaches out to organise the communication content and add you as a participant on our communication platforms. 

2). We provide you a QR code and content for your customers to vote. These are 'people's choice' awards, meaning the business that wins the most votes, wins the award!

3). Awards kick-off! For a month, the FNZCCI and FNZCCI media partners will communicate concerning each participant's activity and invite the community to visit your venue and try out your products. On your side, make sure your day-to-day customers vote for you by scanning the QR code.

4). The votes close. Time to do the final tally and then reveal and congratulate the lucky winners during the 2023 FNZCCI Gala & Business Awards Dinner!
