The Stoppies voting has officially closed and our sophisticated algorithm is now crunching the numbers and determining the editorial and people's choice victors in each of the categories.
The titans of the industry will be announced at the Stoppies event on 6 December at Fresh Factory on Nikau Street.
This will be an awards event with a twist. Tuxedos, hors-d'oeuvres, and wordy acceptance speeches have been stripped away for an evening that promises only cold beverages, an assortment of sizzling sausages and utilitarian trophies (which may or may not double as doorstops). Join us as we give a casual nod of approval to everything that made 2017 another great year in the industry.
The winners of the night will also be collated in a special edition magazine, designed to keep our dear readers entertained during the summer months.
Finalists are requested to prepare five-word acceptance speeches for the night. Unsolicited verbosity will lead to immediate destruction of the winner's trophy.
Tickets can be purchased here.
