Criteria for BOTY

Barbershopper of the Year has very simple rules. Members of the club nominate individuals a few weeks before the AGM. On the evening of the AGM, the final ballot list is given to all members. Whoever receives the most votes wins.

Criteria for The Face Award

The winner is chosen by the Chorus Director for the member who performs the best on the Convention stage.
