Red Funnel Isle of Wight Awards

The Isle of Wight is an amazing place, filled with diverse and remarkable places to go, stay and eat. These are enjoyed by over 2 million visitors a year (as well as 140,000 of us locals), and the strength of Isle of Wight tourism businesses puts us up with the top destinations in the UK.

Over the past 7 years, Red Funnel have celebrated the very best of the Island with the “MyIsleofWight Awards”; the only “Visitor Voted” tourism awards, with 20+ winners each year in an array of unique categories. 

For 2020 the Awards are being revamped; the “Red Funnel Isle of Wight Awards” will introduce simplified categories to bring them in line with nationally recognised awards, along with new awards such as “Best Place for Dogs”, “Greenest Business”, and “Best Newcomer” for newly emerged tourism businesses.

There will be three winners in each category, awarded as Gold, Silver and Bronze, who will be placed by a judging panel from a shortlist created by a public vote.
