Gastronomes and F&B professionals: voting for the That's Food & Drink Awards 2018 in Shenzhen is now officially open!

It’s that time of year again, foodies – time to vote for your favorite bars, restaurants and cafes in our annual That’s Food & Drink Awards! 

With each successive edition, the competition grows stiffer, as new concepts arise to challenge the status quo and keep everyone else in the industry on their toes. 

The task facing our dear voters – all you food and drink lovers in Shenzhen – has never been so great. With you lies the power to determine the finest food and beverage outlets in the city. But remember: with great power, comes great responsibility.

This year’s voting is now open on our official website. You can access it via a link in our official WeChat account (ThatsShenzhen) until November 9. 

As with previous years, we will also offer daily flash voting on our official WeChat accounts, with different categories featured each day. The voting will be open for a 48-hour period, during which time account subscribers will be able to vote for their favorite spots directly on WeChat.

The daily WeChat flash votes will be tallied up and awarded on a weighted scale, with 100 votes going to first place, 50 votes to second place and 25 votes to third place. These votes will then be added to the overall total. You will only have 48 hours to vote – so act fast!

Winners will be announced at our exclusive awards ceremony in late November. Stay tuned!
