How to qualify for Business of the Year 2018

A business first needs to be a member of thebestof Eastbourne. Next, the business member needs to collect 12 validated and live reviews (3 STAR or above) between the 1st Feb 2017 and 30th November 2017.

What happens when a business qualifies?

Once a business has 12 validated reviews they are eligible to take part in the competition. As a qualified business, they will be given bespoke artwork which is added to our photo album on Facebook. This will show their status so they can share with their social media audience etc to encourage additional reviews to be left for their business to help them in the overall competition.

Is it just about reviews?

While the main awards are judged on the total number of reviews we are introducing 5 new categories that will be judged separately. Each category will have its own criteria and these awards will only be announced at the awards evening in March 2018.
