Attention Canberra lovers, it’s almost your time to shine as we gear up to announce another year of our famous OutInCanberra People’s Choice Awards.

Next month we will press ‘play’ on our 2017 People’s Choice Awards campaign to discover Canberra’s favourite Café, Restaurant, Nightlife, Entertainment, and Event and Attraction – with the addition of new sub categories for dining venues: Suburban Gem, Iconic and New Kid on the Block.

Also making a special appearance each week will be a ballot for the Signature Series. Whether it be the ‘best sushi in town,’ or ‘best cup of coffee,’ we want everyone to be involved and win a prize for what they do best!

The campaign will be complete with instant WIN social media prizes and, of course, our major prize of Dinner for Two Every Month for a Year at some of Canberra’s best venues.

2016 was an amazing year for People’s Choice Awards with the following venues taking away first prize in each category:


Favourite Café: The Cupping Room

Favourite Restaurant: AKIBA

Favourite Nightlife: BentSpoke Brewing Co.

Favourite Entertainment: Palace Electric Cinemas

Favourite Event and Attraction: National Multicultural Festival


We’re as passionate about Canberra as you are, so be sure to get involved when voting commences very soon!

Winners will be announced as part of the Canberra and Capital Region Tourism Awards in mid-November.
