Nominations for the 2013 About Greece Readers Choice Awards will open in January, 2013. Anyone may submit a nomination using the form that will be provided at that time. Once the 5 finalists are selected, anyone may vote up to once every 24 hours for their choices. To ensure accuracy, all voters will need to log in via Facebook or About.com or provide their email address. After voting is completed, and, in some cases, during the voting period, About.com's auditing team will review all logs and remove automated or fraudulent votes.

Winners of the Readers' Choice Awards are given the opportunity to use the special About.com "Winner" image and to link to the awarding site from their pages. There is no cash or other award. Competition categories may vary from year to year. Winners and other nominees may be re-nominated in subsequent years.

In some cases, websites were not available for nominated entities. Please let me know if you know of a direct homepage operated by the venue listed (not a review or other conglomerate website) for any missing entries. I also welcome suggestions for additional categories, and any other comments or feedback readers of this website may have. It's called the "Readers" choice awards for a reason and I'm glad to include your input. Thanks again to everyone who has participated.
