June 19, 2009 (RALEIGH, NC) — Thousands of readers and winners are awaiting Metro Magazine’s 10th anniversary MetroBravo awards. Winning results will be published in two installments in the July and August issues.
And this year the anticipation appears to be especially high as the monthly magazine celebrates its 10th birthday during 2009.
According to Katie Reeves, director of sales and marketing for Metro Magazine, “we’ve seen a real spike in ballot entries this year. As the region has grown there are more nominations. Readers realize our 10th birthday adds significance and showcases winners for years to come.”
Over 4000 ballots were submitted by Metro Magazine’s 150,000-plus readership from the Triangle region to the coast.
Readers are asked to fill out ballots published in Metro Magazine (and online at www.metronc.com ) in categories ranging from restaurants and wine, architecture and favorite media personalities, to the best places to buy fashionable clothing, favorite resorts and the top medical facilities in the region.
Readers divulge a myriad of preferences: their favorite soft drink; brand of automobile; brand of liquor; and the best place for a romantic evening, among dozens of other categories.
“It’s great fun every year,” Reeves added, “but it’s also very serious. We work hard to assure accuracy because we know how important it is for area businesses, restaurants and organizations to win.”
