Q & A
Q- How do I get a Mumbler Award?
We don’t decide- the people of Doncaster do. If you’d like to be in with a chance of winning you’ll need to ask your customers, friends and family to nominate you during the nomination month. If you get enough nominations then you’ll make it onto our shortlist which is announced in September. Then the campaigning really starts!
Q- How long is the Nomination period?
Nominations close on 31st July 2021. We will publish the full list of nominations at the beginning of September.
Q-What about the shortlist vote?
Voting for the winners will start in September 2021 and will close at midnight on 30th September 2021
Q- Do I have to campaign for votes?
No, of course you don’t have to however usually the winners each year make a special effort to contact their customers, friends and family and ask them to nominate and vote for them.
To make it easy for you, we have designed “Please vote for us” and “Please nominate us” posters and social media banners. You could also e-mail your customer base, hand out flyers and simply ask your customers nicely if they’ll vote for you!
Q- Why do you ask for comments on the nomination form?
At Mumbler we believe sharing is caring. We use some of the lovely comments (anonymised, of course) on the night, to tell the audience a little more about each business. After the Awards, we send out all of the fantastic comments to all of the finalists. It’s a great part of the job and we love spreading the good vibes!
Q- Do you check for cheaters?
Yes we do! Every vote is checked and someone has cheated we remove all of their votes. Please only vote once!
Q-Why limit the voting area?
These are the Doncaster Mumbler Awards and are for businesses and customers within the Doncaster district. We have other Mumbler towns now and they will host their own Mumbler Awards in the future.
