[vc_row][vc_column][vc_toggle title=”When can I vote?” el_id=”1471980323701-7b67e3cb-4bc9″]The ballot is opened on the first week of August each year, and remains open for just two weeks. No snoozing![/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”How do I enter my business? ” el_id=”1471980343260-05374080-fd8d”]Quite simply, you can’t. What you can do is be the very best in your area of expertise, and then encourage all your customers to vote for you when the ballot opens.[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”Where can I vote? ” el_id=”1471980342364-d4222e7b-838a”]You’ll find the ballot in your local Caxton Newspaper, as well as online on www.bestofjoburg.co.za[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”What do I win? ” el_id=”1471980341429-c0f39e94-fd30″]As a business, you are given a nod of approval by the most important people …. Your customers. You are also given a Best of Joburg certificate, which you can display in your stores. Those companies who win ten and twenty times are given special framed certificates to display.[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”What about the voters? ” el_id=”1471980340077-d4d15b37-f53c”]It’s a long ballot, and we don’t expect our readers to complete it for nothing. So each year there are about half a dozen great prizes up for grabs … think long lazy breaks at Mauritius island resorts, weekends in a top-notch bush lodges and R21 000 shopping sprees.[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”Why do the same companies win every year? ” el_id=”1471980511476-ac9dfd55-960e”]Many of the same companies do win their categories year after year. Why? Well obviously because our readers think they consistently give good service and sell great products. Good for them! However each year there are new and exciting winners. Good for them, too![/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”Are the categories the same every year? ” el_id=”1471980510246-2ab06691-4553″]No. The core of categories remains the same … after all, we’re always going to have a favourite Italian restaurant, a go-to shoe shop and a local programme we simply can’t miss. But fashions come and go, so when something’s really past its sell-by date, we drop that category and add something a little more current.[/vc_toggle][/vc_column][/vc_row]
