The event put the spotlight on the thirteen city teams involved and the ethnic restaurants in those cities. Votes were counted for the four restaurants to represent each city and Leicester Mercury reported that response to their campaign had been "overwhelming" with strong support also reported from newspaper campaigns in Glasgow, Bradford and Edinburgh.

The aim was to profile the achievements of the cities and their communities to the media and the public in a way that is both interesting, enjoyable and useful.

As well as being great fun and of vital income to charity to help feed the starving of the world, the winning of the title Curry Capital was again of great prestige and commercial importance to the winning city attracting tourism and commerce.

All ethnic restaurants in the competing cities will be invited to participate with the aim of increasing the knowledge of both cuisine and culture.

EthniCity is a 'goodnews' event aimed at presenting all that is positive involving the ethnic communities of the competing cities.
