About The Virgin Islands Property & Yacht Readers’ Choice Awards 2015

In 2011, VIPY created the RC awards’ vote and event to commemorate individuals and organisations for their distinctive contribution to the British Virgin Islands community.

This is conducted via categories relevant to people, places, and services situated within the BVI. The voting is concluded with an award ceremony congratulating winners with the highest reader appreciation and this finale is held in October of every year.

The RC participation has expanded considerably since the event’s inception and the competition has intensified. This is the second month of VOTING which can be placed at bvipropertyyacht.com


This will close on August 31, 2015.
