Are you excited for Best of Pretoria 2023? Voting opens tomorrow

Are you excited to start voting for this year’s Best of Pretoria Readers’ Choice Awards? Get ready because voting opens tomorrow!

This year, we are celebrating a decade of Pretoria’s best. That is 10 years of giving a nod of appreciation to those businesses and institutions that make Pretoria such a great place to live in.

Plus, this year there are prizes worth more than R80 000 to be won!

Best of Pretoria has become an annual highlight in Pretoria. Each year Capital Media, the publisher of Rekord newspaper and Get it Pretoria magazine, opens the voting lines to find out who Pretoria residents think the best of the best are.

We are talking best in services, businesses, institutions, restaurants, schools, local hotspots and even local celebrities.

There are seven categories in which you can vote: Living in Pretoria, Shopping, Eat and Drink, Be Merry, Dining Out, Glam it Up and Kids.

We provide the categories, and you tell us who the winners in each should be. To make it easier than ever to vote, we’ve included a drop-down menu which contains the winners from the past nine years. However, there is still no shortlist – you can vote for whoever you feel deserves the crown. The name with the most votes walks away as the winner – it’s as easy as that!

You get one vote per category so remember to make it count!

Voting will open tomorrow (August 1) and will close at noon on August 21.

To celebrate 10 years of Best of Pretoria, we are giving away weekly prizes, including:
– Bakwena Spa vouchers
– tickets to the Barnyard Theatre (including pizzas)
– vouchers to the Forti Grill, Forti Too and Forti Bistro as well as Vee and Forti Wine and Bar and Liquor Emporium
– Brooklyn Mall vouchers
– vouchers to Nu Skinnovation
– SPAR vouchers
– vouchers to Anja’s tea garden
– a Silver Lakes Country Club voucher
– a Tobi Recipe Book
– two bottles of SAACA GIN
– three hand-woven Marnuk scarfs
– Dallmayr Coffee hampers
– SAACA dog food and toys hampers
– tickets to the Centurion theatre
– a Rachella Coffee Shop voucher.

You are automatically entered when you vote online. Winners will be drawn at random throughout the competition and announced weekly on our social media platforms.
