From Thursday 1 – Tuesday 20 December, we will be hosting two major competitions: Best Decorated Business and Best Decorated Residence.
Any home or business located within the Gore District can participate.
Register your home or business on the form below to take part in the competition. We will email all registered participants their QR code poster on 29 November, ready to be printed out and displayed somewhere easy to see, in time for voting to open.
The Voting Process:
Voting will open on Thursday 1 December and close at 12 Noon on Tuesday 20 December. The public will be able to vote for their favourite businesses and residences by scanning the QR code poster using their smartphone's camera. Alternatively, physical voting papers can be completed and submitted at the Gore District Council office, 29 Bowler Avenue.
Only one vote per property or business will be counted, per device or physical form. Multiple votes from the same device for one property will be discounted.
The business and residence with the most votes at the end of the voting period will win.

The flight will be weather dependent and advance booking is required. Blackout periods apply. Winner must be able to arrange their own transportation to and from the High Country Helicopters hangar.
