For years, we’ve asked our readers to complete Best of the Quad Cities ballots with dozens of categories. We’ve always been gratified by the response, but we’ve often felt that something was missing – the obscure, the unconventional, the idiosyncratic.
For the fall 2011 Best of the Quad Cities, we’re scrapping the traditional popular-vote format and allowing nominations by Twitter, video, and essay.
Our “winners” this time around will be the nomination authors – the people who offer the most creative, the most authoritative, and the most compelling arguments and anecdotes in the 20 categories listed below covering the areas of arts, culture, and entertainment; night life; shopping and services; and people. (Each submission should cover only one category, and you’re welcome to submit in as many or as few categories as you want.)
In the interest of getting more entries, we've extended our deadline. All entries must now be received by 5 p.m. Central on Friday, December 2. Our Best of the Quad Cities issue will be published on December 22.
Twitter: Include the hashtag #BestQC followed by a space and the category number. Example: “This is my best argument for the best art exhibit, and I’m making sure that it’s 140 characters or fewer. #BestQC 7” (For some sample submissions, visit TwapperKeeper.com/hashtag/BestQC.)
