Readers’ Choice kicks off

The Peninsula News Review’s 2014 Readers’ Choice Awards start today

SIDNEY — The Peninsula News Review is asking you, our readers, to tell us where to find the region’s finest pubs, restaurants, art galleries, sports activities, festivals and much more.

Today marks the start of balloting in our ninth annual Readers’ Choice Awards.

“Every year at this time we  announce our Readers’ Choice Survey,” said PNR Publisher, Jim Parker.

“This is our readers’ chance to let us know about all the great things the Peninsula has to offer and is  an opportunity to tell us their favourites, whether it be a special place, a must-see event or a special person.”

In today’s paper — and in each edition up to our deadline of Sunday, April 20 — there will be a full page ballot, featuring subjects such as shopping, health, seniors, children and more.

Readers are encouraged to use that page as their official entry into the Readers’ Choice Awards.

As well, our web readers can use our online ballot at under the contests header at the top of the page.

By entering your ballot, you will be eligible to win one of two $250 gift cards from Thrifty Foods in Sidney and Central Saanich.

The results of the reader survey will be compiled by our staff and published in a special section of the paper in May.

As well, the News Review will host a special event for nominees and winners in May.

Be sure to check out the ballot for the entry rules.
