How does the voting work?
Once your project has been approved, share it with as many friends, family and community supporters as possible to get their votes. The projects with the most votes will become finalists. For requests of up to £1,000, the finalists’ submitted projects will receive the funding they requested, subject to due diligence. For all other funding levels, finalist entries will be reviewed by our panels of judges to decide which entries are awarded the funding.
Who can vote?
Anyone who lives in the UK and registers on the Aviva Community Fund website can vote for projects during the voting phase of the awards. Please read our terms and conditions for full details.
How do I vote for a project?
Once you’ve registered on the Aviva Community Fund website, all you need to do is click on the ‘Vote’ button on any project you want to support. Each registered user gets 10 votes they can use at any time.
How many projects can I vote for?
You can support as many projects as you like with your votes (up to 10). Spread them around or use them all to support one project – it’s your choice. But use them wisely. Once a vote is used, you can’t take it back.
When can I vote?
You can vote at any time during the voting phase of the competition, which runs from 9am on 21 October to midday on 18 November 2016.
If I have submitted a project, can I vote for my own project?
Can votes be disqualified?
Aviva can disqualify any votes they consider to be fraudulent or contrary to the terms and conditions. Proxy voting isn’t allowed, and any proxy votes will be disqualified at Aviva’s discretion.
Can I delete my profile?
Yes. You can delete your profile at any time by contacting us. Please be aware that any projects you have submitted may also be deleted.
