VegfestUK Awards 2020: Voting has started!

22nd November 2020

Voting has started in the 14th annual VegfestUK Awards as 200 nominees complete the 20 different categories to establish the finest amongst the growing UK vegan community. Since its conception in 2007, the awards have seen an amazing total of 1890 different nominees in that time, an era that has witnessed the explosion of plant based diets and ethical veganism everywhere. Voting commenced on Sunday November 22nd and finishes on Sunday December 6th before the results are announced at VegfestUK Online Saturday December 12th via a livestream awards ceremony.

“2020 is an extraordinary year for a multitude of reasons” said organiser of the awards and VegfestUK manager Tim Barford “but that hasn’t stopped the phenomenal growth of all things vegan and plant based. Indeed, 2020 is a landmark, with ethical veganism being recognised in law in the UK, whilst an incredible 400,000 people tried a plant based diet during Veganuary 2020, and many more since. It is indeed an honour to represent once again so many superlative individuals, products, projects, publications and personal achievement in the world of vegan with these awards, now in their 14th consecutive year.”

Entry is free for the awards , and voting is free for the public, but for 2020 for the first time, donations from both the public and from the nominees is being requested. Bereft of income, VegfestUK like many exhibition and events companies are striving hard to stay afloat in absence of live events, and are requesting that voters purchase a ‘virtual ticket’ for £5 in support of the event. A sign of the times no doubt, but that hasn’t stopped VegfestUK from hosting the awards with an online awards ceremony lined up for December 12th, nor has Covid 19 stopped the growth of veganism, as can be seen by the incredible line up of 200 nominees for this year’s vegan awards.
