Montagu a Finalist again!
Monday, 13 February 2012Montagu is in the 'Competition Limelight' again and is a finalist in the South African Destination Awards Competition!
To quote CapeInfo: The aim of the competition is to recognise and reward outstanding destinations, both large and small in different categories, and discover & encourage those with potential throughout South Africa.
" ... a destination is a place where people want to be. It is a special place, it is more than just bricks and mortar; it is a place which has as its greatest asset the ability to occupy people’s minds and hearts.” ...
This competition is one with a difference. Entrants could submit preliminary content (information about their towns) and then edit and expand the entry over the period of time afforded them.
The competition is about wider, meaningful public participation. It's not just about public or judges' votes. Entrants needed to explain what their destination offers that makes it noteworthy. The public involvement is where the visitors to the destinations - as well as the citizens - can vote for (rate and review) the destination of their choice.
The reviews count more than the votes, and reviews or votes from visitors count more than those by locals (who of course want to see their town win!).
To Rate & Review any of the towns in the finals, please visit the CapeInfo website: www.capeinfo.com/

Each review can make the difference.
Good Luck Montagu!
