NOMINATIONS ARE NOW CLOSED.
Any nominations received after midnight on Sunday 15th March will not be included in the next round of this years Source Awards for Excellence. Stand by for our next round – the public vote!
What started as a bit of fun, an informal round of applause if you will, for those business owners and resort staff that work so hard all season, has now turned into a hotly contested battle. The number of businesses nominated in our 2019 awards was five times more than when we started the awards in 2012. Seven times more votes were cast and it was harder than ever for our secret judges to choose their winners. Let the Winter 20 games commence!
Our aim here is to recognise and reward the very best of the best in Morzine, Les Gets, Avoriaz and the surrounding valley. We’re looking for the local businesses that consistently go above and beyond to make holidaymakers and local folk happy. We’re on the hunt for the local businesses that do an outstanding job of promoting our destination. We’re seeking those who always deliver what they promise and then go that extra mile too.
Voting in the Favourite Customer Service, Accommodation and Bar categories works as follows…
ROUND 1 – Complete the nomination form. Tell us which local business has impressed you and why they deserve your nomination. The more information you can include at this stage, the better chance your nominated business has of proceeding to the final round of the awards. Nominations open at 9am on Monday 16 December and close at midnight on Sunday 15 March 2020.
ROUND 2 – On Monday 16 March 2020 we’ll announce a full list of all the nominated businesses in each of the these three categories. You’ll be able to vote for your favourite business on our website for the next 14 days, but note IP address restrictors will be in place and you’ll only be able to vote once per IP address.
Voting in Round 2 closes at midnight on 29 March 2020 and the three businesses with the most votes in each category will enter the final stage of the awards. We’ll announce our three finalists on Monday 30 March 2020.
ROUND 3 – We’ll present our team of secret judges (all locals, all entirely independent) with all the nomination forms for our three finalists. They’ll choose their winners in each category based on guest and customer feedback.
We’ll announce the winners in each category at the Source Suppliers Show at the Domaine du Baron on Lac Montriond on Tuesday 7th April 2020.
Voting in the Local Hero category works as follows…
There’s no shortage of inspiring, stand out heroes in our valley, that’s for sure. In fact, you’ll find a few of them on the pages of this very magazine. But who blows your mind? Who do you want to recognise for their outstanding contribution to our community? We’re dying to know.
ROUND 1: Complete the nomination form above, selecting the ‘Local Hero’ category. Please include as much information as you can about your local hero, including why they inspire you. Nominations open on Monday 16 December 2019 and close on Sunday 15 March 2020.
ROUND 2: Our top secret and entirely independent set of judges will meet to consider all the nominations on your submissions and they’ll select their winner.
Nominating in the Best Food category works as follows…
Chefs, whether you’re cooking in a chalet, hotel, restaurant or café, we want you to be bold and brave and nominate yourself. If you’re getting excellent feedback from diners, or if you’re doing something unique, we want to help you showcase your food. But to do that, you need to complete our self-nomination form.

ROUND 2: Each chef will prepare and present a standout dish for our team of judges to showcase their style and their skills. This cook-off will take place at the Source Suppliers Show at the Domaine du Baron on Tuesday 7 April 2020 and you’ll be able to use the venue’s kitchen to prepare your dish.
Nominating in the Montagne Verte Sustainability Award category works as follows…
***NOTE*** This award is open to all businesses.
We’re passionate supporters of Montagne Verte, our valley’s very own eco initiative to reduce our impact on the planet. We’ve therefore joined forces to launch this new award category, which comes complete with a special prize for the winner.
Do you run a green business? Is reducing your impact on your local environment at the core of all your business processes? Do you work hard to educate holidaymakers about the risks faced by our beautiful snowy playground? You should nominate your business for two reasons; firstly for recognition and secondly to share your efforts with others so they can learn from them too.
ROUND 1: Scroll down and tap on the link to the Montagne Verte Sustainability Award nomination form. Go through the motions, including as much information as you can in each section. Nominations in this category open on Monday 16 December 2019 and close at midnight on Sunday 15 March 2020. If you haven’t already signed the Montagne Verte pledge, we recommend you do as this is a great way to showcase your commitment to the environment.
We’ll present all nominations to the team at Montagne Verte for discussion. Between them they’ll pick their local eco hero based on a number of factors, including business processes, education and more. The winning business in this category will be showcased extensively in the Summer 20 issue of Morzine Source Magazine.
We’ll announce the winners in each category at the Source Suppliers Show at the Domaine du Baron on Lac Montriond on Tuesday 7 April 2020. Everyone is welcome to join us at 3pm for our awards announcement!
