Welcome to The Chronicle-Journal 2024 Readers' Choice Award Contest

Help us celebrate the best our community has to offer!



Runs from April 15 to June 16, 2024


Nominations & voting are now underway! Let your favourite Thunder Bay businesses, people and places know how much you appreciate them with a nomination, then come back to cast your vote daily!

To vote, you will be asked to create a Login. After you are logged in, you can vote for all your favourites once daily until contest ends June 16th.

New this year, to ensure the community has the opportunity to actively participate in shaping the results, we are accepting new nominations and daily votes throughout the contest run. There will not be a separate nomination and voting process. 

If you do not see your favourite(s) listed, honour them with your nomination. There is an entry box at the end of each sub-category where you can enter their name. Once submitted, there may be a slight delay while our system is updated with the new nomination.

Then remember to come back and vote once daily per sub-category until June 16th.

Take the time to scroll through all 12 categories and their sub-categories. You may find many more you wish to give your vote!

This year's contest promises to be a celebration of community spirit showcasing the outstanding contributions that make Thunder Bay the vibrant and unique place it is.

Congratulations to all the nominees and thank you to everyone who has placed a vote.
