The 2017 NOW Reader’s Choice Awards Are Open for Voting

It’s that time of year again! The annual NOW Reader’s Choice Awards are now open for voting. Show support for our local and amazing businesses and individuals. We have broken down the various categories and nominees below.

Now Magazine has been providing Toronto readers local news and stories since 1981 under the first editors Michael Hollett and Alice Klein (as per to Wikipedia). Originally starting a print publication and producing weekly papers, they have kept abreast of times and now primarily operate on an online format. About 20 years ago, the Reader’s Choice Awards were created to honour and showcase many of the readers’ favourite spots in the city. It is the reader’s that truly know what the best of spots are in the city anyways, right? Every year, new categories are added. Currently, more than 200 categories exist to ensure that our favourite businesses can be rightfully nominated in a relevant area.
