Vote for your service businesses in our People's Choice Awards!

It's time. Let's celebrate our marvellous local businesses in this year's 2022 Sunshine Coast People's Choice Awards.
People's Choice awards services

So the second "heat" of the 2022 Sunshine Coast People’s Choice Awards is done. Thank you all for picking out your favourite retailers!

Now, voting is open for the Coast's best service businesses – the ballot is open until midnight Aug. 11. 

A reminder of how this works:

For this year's people's choice awards, voting is split into four ballots. Every two weeks you’ll get a new selection of businesses to vote for. Don’t know them all? Take this opportunity to dig into our local scene as we enjoy our first summer without COVID restrictions in three years.

  • First up were our Coast retail businesses. Voting was between July 1 and July 14.
  • Then came voting for our best health, wellness and lifestyle businesses between July 15 and 28.
  • Now, it's our services! July 29 to Aug. 11 (ending at 11:59 p.m.). 
  • Finally, what a way to end the summer, food and drink voting is between Aug. 13 and 25.

We’ll all get to find out who placed first, second and third in October (watch for the extra special special feature).

Community cheering on community is one of my favourite things to see. As I’m tucked away in the newsroom, it’s been my colleagues at Coast Reporter who’ve put this community-celebrating contest together along with the folks at the Sunshine Coast Business Recovery Centre as well as the Pender Harbour, Gibsons and Sechelt Chambers of Commerce. Well done, all!  

How do you “Coast Your Vote?” Visit And be sure to set a reminder to revisit every two weeks. (We’ll remind you too.) Happy summer and happy voting!
