THE FORM UKBLUES AWARDS – REGISTER & VOTE NOW!

Voting in the FORM UKBlues Awards opened at midnight, 1st February 2018.

You can find a list of all the finalists in the 17 categories in the FORM UKBlues Awards at www.ukbluesawards.com/finalists

But before you can vote, as a security and management measure, you will first have to go through a simple registration process.

Registration is now open at Register

If you are already a member of the UKBlues Federation you do not need to register as we have pre-registered you and you should have received an e-mail giving you all necessary details to enable you to vote.

We know that most people have a phobia of reading rules etc. but we do urge you to visit the Rules page of the Awards website and note, in particular, those applicable to the voting process – http://ukbluesawards.com/rules

Whilst it is appreciated that voters may not wish to vote in every category, voters are requested to cast votes in as many categories as possible. To avoid the possibility of the voting being ‘hijacked’ or unduly biased, the UKBlues Federation reserves the right to disallow votes from voters who have not voted in at least six of the nine main categories (1 to 9 inclusive).
