The Georgia Straight (the newspaper, not the body of water) is known for being an authority on all-things passing through and within Vancouver and they’re putting the call out for your picks for the 13th annual Best of Vancouver 2008.

There are 238 questions in categories like City Life, Media, Arts, & Culture, Travel, Mind Body & Soul, Sports & Recreation, Living, Style, Food & Drink, Nightlife, and Sex & Romance.

According to their website, “Readers who answer 25 or more questions are automatically entered in a draw for a trip for 2 to Las Vegas,” so there’s a little incentive for your vote and speaking up for that little mom ‘n pop diner or day spa you’d like to promote.

A highlight this year is that they have added more to their “Media” section, including: Best local blog page, Best local webcam, Best local website for green living, Best local activists’ website, Best online community web page, Best Vancouver Facebook group, Best local podcast, Best online source to buy music, Best online source for free music.

I’ll more than likely be doing another Best of 604 as I have my own picks for things like the best site for green living so perhaps this year we’ll have some similar results.

You can vote for the Straight’s Best of Vancouver 2008 through their online ballot and the issue will be out September 18, 2008.
