POTY Terms and Conditions

In order to nominate a pub for Pub of the Year 2018, you MUST be a member of the Liverpool & Districts CAMRA branch. Your membership card, should state if you are a member of the branch. If it doesn't – or if you have a gold card – please contact Membership Services on 01727 867201 or membership@camra.org.uk to confirm.

Members are invited to vote for their favourite city centre pub and/or their favourite suburban pub, but you do not have to vote for both. You may vote for a city centre pub and leave the suburban box blank or vice versa. This is the means by which we select the pubs that go forward for judging our Pub of the Year. Nominated pub(s) must be within the branch area (i.e not in St Helens,Wirral or Formby etc), so please don't waste your vote.

We define city centre pubs as those on the main body of the pub map, which can be found on the website, along with a list of the suburbs contained within our branch. If you are unsure if a pub is within the branch area, you can check this by searching on the WhatPub database (www.whatpub.com).The responsible branch will be stated at the bottom of the entry.

Only one vote per member will be allowed. Nominations can be made below. Nomination forms will also be made available at all future get-togethers & coach trips You can also email poty@liverpoolcamra.org.uk (from October) with your name, membership number and nominations. Reminders will be issued through Twitter / Facebook and the monthly branch newsletter. The closing date for nominations is SATURDAY, 27th January 2018 @6pm. This is to give ample time for the judging process.

As in previous years, the three city centre pubs and two suburban pubs that get the most nominations will go forward for judging. This process has been devised to recognise the fact that there are so many good pubs in our branch area - and is a means of fairly reflecting this in the voting system. Each pub will then be visited twice by a panel of judges chosen by the competition Co-ordinator. The judging process will be conducted according to national guidelines. The results of the competition will be announced at a future Get Together (TBC).

There will be ONE Pub of the Year winner.

Finally, I would like to make it clear that I (Andre Fu) compile the results and therefore do not get involved in the judging process. Intimidation of any member of the Liverpool & Districts CAMRA committee regarding this - or any other matter – will not be tolerated. Action will be taken against licensees or members who initiate any form of intimidation (including via social media). Any comments or queries regarding the competition should be raised either at a Get Together or a Committee Meeting.
