Local.com ‘Best Of’ Contest

Taking a page from Citysearch, among others, Local.com has launched a Best of Local contest:

The annual “Best of Local” program will feature the best businesses as rated by consumers in 15 cities and 20 categories across the U.S. Businesses will be ranked based on the quantity and quality of the reviews that have been submitted about their business by visitors to Local.com. “Best of Local” winners will be selected and announced on December 1, 2008.

Everyone loves contests like this. In fact, Cityvoter has built its ratings mechanism around audience voting.
