Nearly 200 guests gathered at The Peninsula Shanghai on the evening of November 20 to celebrate the first lifestyle awards hosted by Shanghai Daily.
The 2012 Shanghai Daily iDEALShanghai Awards ceremony granted honors to 49 venues among 10 categories. The winners were chosen out of 247 candidates through src and jury panel’s votes.
iDEALShanghai is the first lifestyle award given by Shanghai Daily since it was established in 1999. The awards go to the most popular restaurants, bars, travel destinations, hotels and airlines of the year. To ensure fairness, readers and non-readers as well have been invited to vote their favorite choices. The poll opened on August 24 and closed on October 24. A jury of six reporters, columnists and lifestyle writers, has evaluated winners based on the voting result.
