The FxEctive Factor 2018 finalists confirmed

2nd March 2018

The qualifying poll for the 8 places at the final of The FxEctive Factor competition has reached its inclusion, with around 400 votes received for the 9 nominees.

We can now reveal the 8 nominees who have qualified for the final, which takes place on Saturday March 24th 2018 at the Brighton Centre as part of VegfestUK Brighton. Congratulations to all 8 finalists who booked their places at the final through their scores in the poll, and commiserations to the 1 nominee who was unfortunately eliminated.

The 8 nominees will now compete live at the final, to be judged by our panel of all-star judges – see link here for the full lineup of judges.

The voting constitutes half the final points tally for the 8 nominees, with the other half to be determined by the judges, and the winner will be announced at around 4:30pm on the Saturday March 24th 2018 on the Stage.

The public is very welcome to attend the final live – see details here for tickets.
