Best of Food: Ballot Ads

Best of Food & Drink 2017 is now in full swing! Thousands of Planet S’ loyal readers are flocking to our online poll to nominate, and then vote on, their favourite restaurants, menu items, food shops and more. And now we have a whole new way to get your business in front of their hungry eyes…

Introducing: Ballot Ads! That’s right, now you can advertise right on the online contest pages throughout the run of the poll. Don’t miss this great opportunity to expand your reach.

Here’s how the contest works: From now until March 6 is an open nomination round where readers submit their suggestions on the online ballot. In the second round (March 14 to April 20), the top nominees move on to a multiple-choice ballot and Saskatoon votes. After voting is done, the ballot stays online for people to refer to. Then on May 25, all the winners and runners-up are published online and in print.
