Voting in this year’s Bank of Ireland Junk Kouture competition is going to be a little different. We have some exciting changes coming your way! There will be 3 voting periods this year: The Lifeline, the Regional, and the Grand Final. Each voting period will last 5 days and will take place over the following dates:


Lifeline Vote: 12-16 February

Regional Vote: 19-23 February

Grand Final Vote: 2-6 April


Anybody can vote! You don’t have to be entering the competition or know someone who is. Voting will take place at Each day during a voting period you will be able to vote for any design once (there is no cap on how many design you can vote for in a day, but only 1 vote per design).


At the end of each voting period, there will be a Super Friday vote: Throughout the week you can complete activities to get extra votes, which will add up over the voting week to be used on Friday. At the end of the week, you can put the total number of votes towards ONE outfit. You’ll need to choose carefully- there’s no going back after you’ve spent your Super Friday votes! You can still give your regular daily votes to other designs on Super Friday.


There are a few different ways you can get Super Friday votes. You can complete any, all, or none! Each day that you vote for even 1 outfit gives you 1 Super Friday vote. Each day you can also share any outfit on Facebook for an extra vote (you can share as many as outfits as you’d like, but you will only get 1 Super Friday vote per day that you share). There will also be social media accounts that you can follow which will give you 5 Super Friday votes each.


In each voting period, you can give 1 design a maximum of 25 Super Friday votes and 5 standard votes for a total of 30 possible votes. Designs that you do not choose to allocate your Super Friday votes to can still get up to 5 regular votes from each voter throughout the week!
