U.G.L.Y. Bartender of the Year

UGLY Bartender of the Year

U.G.L.Y. stands for Understanding, Generous, Likeable, You!

The Leukaemia Foundation’s U.G.L.Y. Bartender of the Year fundraising competition is the biggest fundraiser in the Australian Hospitality Industry, and celebrates a decade of success in 2018.


Throughout this quirky competition, bartenders and patrons embrace the Understanding Generous Likeable You spirit, raising funds in fun and fabulous ways in their venues.

The 2018 U.G.L.Y. Bartender of the Year competition dates are:

  • Queensland: 1 August to 11 September 2018
  • All other states: 1 October to 13 November 2018

Over the past nine years these creative venues and bartenders have raised nearly $12 million to help blood cancer patients and their families. In 2017, more than 1,450 venues across Australia raised more than $1.7 million for the Leukaemia Foundation and the industry is aiming to raise nearly $2 million in 2018.
