Denizen Everyday Heroes: Show your support for small businesses and be in to win!

Following on from our popular Hospo Heroes series, Denizen Everyday Heroes is your chance to celebrate those in our community whose services we rely upon.

Denizen Everyday Heroes is a celebration of the small businesses that have been so hugely affected by the challenges this year has presented. By shining a light on these fantastic people and places — whether it’s a florist, facialist, butcher, baker or bookstore — we are giving them the recognition and attention they deserve.

Our team of editors have preselected a shortlist of finalists, covering a vast array of diverse categories to ensure we celebrate as many amazing businesses as possible. 

By both voting, and sharing your favourites on your social channels, you’ll be doing your bit to support these small enterprises.

To thank you for doing so, everyone who votes goes in the draw to win one of four $500 vouchers to be spent at one of the winning businesses.

With your support, together we can celebrate and honour those who have worked so hard to continue to add value to our community.

Voting has now closed.

Submissions close midnight Monday 9th November 2020. Our Everyday Heroes will be announced on the Denizen website and across our social channels.

The four winners of the $500 vouchers will be contacted via email on Friday 13th November.
