In August 2018, we will celebrate Faulkner County’s Best community choice awards, powered by Log Cabin Media.

To commemorate this launch, we are sharing program details about the program’s components with all our business partners that will help ensure the validity of the contest and offer more to the residents of the North Metro market and our advertisers.

All Best nominees and winners will live on by way of content in The Log Cabin Democrat and thecabin.net.com throughout the year.

There will be two rounds of voting:

The first round is nominations, to identify the top 5 businesses in each category. It will start on Sunday, April 22, and run through Sunday, May 6. The nomination ballots will be submitted online and nominations will be limited to 1 vote per day, per user.

The second round of voting will be multiple choice, with the top nominees from each category advancing to the ballot (minimum nominees per category is 2 and maximum is 5). This round of voting will start on Sunday, June 10, and run through Sunday, June 24. We will offer one full ballot in the June 10 Log Cabin Democrat.

Final voting will also be entirely online. We will have staff available at the Log Cabin Media offices to offer assistance to readers/voters who wish to vote, but don’t have access to a computer.

We will be celebrating all the nominees and announcing the winners at our First Annual Best Gala event on August 9. Each nominee will receive 2 tickets to this red-carpet event with their ad package; more tickets and tables will be available for purchase — think of this as our market’s Oscar Award Gala.

The Log Cabin Faulkner County Best Of special publication will come out August 12, the Sunday after our event. All nominees will have the opportunity to purchase an ad in the publication and come to the gala. Advertising will be based on the honor of being a finalist, as winners will not be announced until the day of the Gala.

Best of the Best will live on throughout the year. We will also use the Log Cabin Media Best Of data for news and information outside of the campaign, such as top 3 places to eat a burger, etc.

The purchase of advertising in The Log Cabin Democrat or other Log Cabin Media products does not influence the outcome of the Best voting process.

If you have any additional questions, please contact your Log Cabin Media sales representative

or email llicht@thecabin.net.

We are looking forward to working with you during Best Of. Thank you for your interest, continued support and participation.

Good Luck!!
