Hadyn Green buddies up with Giovanni Ribisi(Last year TAWA Awards Night)

One week from now on  December 16 (until 10am) is the last day of voting for the Third Annual Wellingtonista Awards, so what are you waiting for cast yor vote  and “elect” a winner.

The voting form is here (opens in a new window).

The winners will be announced at the award ceremony on Thursday, December 18 at Mighty Mighty. Details on that event will be posted at http://wellingtonista.com, but keep your diaries free (add it on Facebook if you like).

Voting will remain open from now until 10am, Tuesday December 16. So you’ve got a littel bit of time to remind your deadbeat non-voting friends.
