Frequently Asked Questions

How do I get shortlisted for the Hoop Awards?

Shortlists are based on interaction with your listings on Hoop. We use data about how many families have interacted with your listing to shortlist up to 8 organisers per category.

Interaction with your listings includes:

  • Activity Views

  • Activity Saves & Shares

  • Ratings & Reviews

Can I win if I’m not shortlisted?

Yes! While we feel that shortlisting is an important part of the process as it allows families to quickly discover some of the most popular activities on Hoop in their area, we know that there are loads of amazing organisations who don’t make it on to the shortlists (especially in a competitive area like London). All you need to do is ask your customers to vote for you by submitting your organisation name under ‘Other’ in the relevant category. The winner will be the organisation with the most votes.

What can I do now for the best chance of success?

  • Make sure your activities are listed on Hoop! You won’t get any views, saves or shares from families if you don’t have any listings.

  • Encourage your customers to rate and review your activities on Hoop. Ratings will be a key part of the shortlisting procedure - plus organisations with reviews on Hoop are 2x more likely to get a booking!

When will shortlists be announced?

Shortlists will be announced and voting will open on 4th March 2020. You don’t need to be shortlisted to win!
