Voting now open for 2023 Best of the City awards

Voting for the 29th Annual Best of the City Awards is now open.

Residents can vote for their favorite businesses and hotspots across Greater Victoria. Presented by Black Press Media, there are 121 categories this year, ranging from sports and leisure to resorts, and from best Sunday brunches to leisure and shopping.

This year’s lineup also includes several new categories, so there’s something for everyone.

Does a visit to your local dentist make you smile? Is there a jeweler in Victoria that dazzles you? Here’s your chance to vote for them. Do you have a bar or brewery that you think is the best? Or would you like to vote for an unforgettable whale watching trip? With so many local businesses making life good in Victoria, this competition has the community vote for which they think is the best.

Maybe there’s an auto body shop that you think is excellent, or a certain cleaning service that always makes you go the extra mile. Maybe you’ve been complimenting your local musical instrument store, or maybe your local pet groomer keeps your pooch looking great. This is your chance to do your part to help these businesses get recognized.

The top three finalists in each category will be announced in a special July issue that you can’t miss.

Enter, nominate and vote online at At least 10 categories. Participants will also have the chance to win a $400 Explore Victoria prize pack.

Voting closes at midnight May 17th, so don’t wait.
