4X4 of the year – Voting now open
Over the last week, or judging panel has had their hands full, sifting through the hundreds and hundreds of entries we received in our 4X4 of The Year competition. Their mission was to whittle each category down to a shortlist of 5 entries that the public can then vote on to crown the winners.
I can tell you that I found it very difficult to choose just 5 from each category given the quality of entries, and it took a number of rounds for us to get to the final list. If you’d like to know more about the judges for the competition, you’ll find their details below.
Vote and Win!
Voting is now open until the 20th July. We need you to get onto the website and cast your vote to crown the winners of each category. By doing so, you’ll also go into the draw to win $5,000.00 worth of Opposite Lock 4X4 accessories and a set of 5 Toyo Open Country tyres valued at up to $2,500.00.
Voting is simple – visit the website www.club4x4.com.au/4x4oty, enter your details and submit the form (so we can make contact with the winner), and then use the heart icon that appears under each of the finalists to choose your winner. Don’t forget that there are 6 categories we need your vote on too!
Voting is only open until 20th July, so get in quick for your chance to win. And tell your friends!
