Nominations are now open for the Best of Windsor Essex Awards
Winners, finalists, and nominees will gain fabulous value from added exposure and increased credibility. This is your opportunity to tell the world that you stand heads and shoulders above the crowd as the “Best”. Furthermore, the campaign created an authentic list that resonated with visitors and gave us the opportunity to highlight the best of what the region has to offer.
Last year’s campaign engaged local residents and visitors to share their favorite attractions and drew a tremendous response during Phase II, with over 1,000 people nominating over 3,500 businesses. Those nominations were then pared down into the top five in each category and Phase II began with over 3,000 people voting on the top 5 in each category for their favorite spots in the region – where they like to eat, shop, dine and play. This is your chance to be featured among the best of the best.
Last year over 3,000 people voted for their favourite places to eat, drink, dine, play, and shop in Windsor, Essex County & Pelee Island. Visitors love to patronize where the locals go and we need your help.
Here’s your chance to tell us what you like. Help us put together the most comprehensive list of the ‘Best Of’ places to see & do.
