VIPY RC Nominations 2015!

16 Oct 14 - B_025

Virgin Islands Property & Yacht Readers’ Choice Awards 2015

Nomination Time!

Let the nominations commence!

But first, if you’re not familiar with our event or even if you are, please peruse the information surrounding the background of the grand occasion as well as the procedure for the months leading to the results.

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 the finale is held in October of every year.


The event participation has expanded considerably since the event’s inception and the competition has intensified. For 2015, we have condensed the quantity of categories merging certain sections together for a broader number of businesses to become involved.

The VIPY RC 2015 Procedure

This month is dedicated to nominations which can be placed at bvipropertyyacht.com – this will close June 30.

July and August will allow the opportunity for voting, which will also be conducted online.

We must specify that nominations ARE NOT VOTES. All nominations will be accepted as long as they are real and relevant to the category – please attempt to spell the name of the BVI establishment, service, or person correctly.
