About Us

Bloemfontein has no limits when it comes to possibilities. There’s something to do, eat, drink or buy every day of the week. The Best of Bloemfontein Readers’ Choice Awards celebrates all this and more, but it also gives you the chance to tell us who and what’s the best of the best.

Bloemfontein Courant launched the City of Roses’ hottest competition, Best of Bloemfontein Readers’ Choice Awards, in 2013.

These awards are now the talk of the town and business owners have realised the value of customers rewarding their businesses for good service.

For this year’s competition Bloemfontein Courant provides readers with the ballots (published on 27 July).

Readers can then vote in 76 categories – everything from Best New Restaurant to Best Shopping Centre, from Favourite Radio Personality to Best Place to buy Biltong!

Thousands of entries poured in the previous years.

This year we have streamlined the categories to get in line with the national Best of Awards and soon local companies will be able to compete against their peers from around the country.

But this competition really is all about the best businesses and people in Bloem… the winning businesses and personalities are provided with certificates of merit, which are proudly displayed in their stores. In October each year, the winners are announced and the Bloemfontein Courant Best of Bloemfontein Readers’ Choice Awards Supplement is published – a handy, Best of Bloemfontein newspaper with a year-long shelf-life … a newspaper to refer to whenever they’re looking for the best of the best in the City of Roses.

But we haven’t forgotten about our loyal readers. Each year the names of readers who voted in the competition are entered into a lucky draw and they will once again walk away with some amazing prizes.

The winners’ details are also available online at www.bestofbloemfontein.co.za throughout the year following the competition.
