Just in time for Lent, Niagara Frontier Publications' returning web contest seeks an answer to one of life's great questions: Which restaurant has the best fish fry?
(UPDATED APRIL 1, 2020)
From Monday, Feb. 24, through midnight EST Monday, March 30, 2020, vote HERE for the Western New York restaurants that serve delicious fish dishes. The eatery with the most votes will be featured in the Niagara-Wheatfield-NT Tribune, Island Dispatch, Lewiston-Porter Sentinel and on this website.
When you cast a vote, you'll be entered to win a fish fry for two or a general food gift certificate courtesy of a Western New York-area restaurant. One winner will be selected each Monday (March 2-March 30) by random draw and notified by phone call or email.
Your voice matters! Tell us which restaurant serves the freshest catches and tastiest batters while providing the best bang for your buck.
TO ENTER: Fill out the form by clicking the highlighted link above, or the link below, to redirect to the entry webpage. Once there, answer the questions and submit the information.
Entries also can be found in Niagara Frontier Publication's (NFP) newspapers. Those entries can be submitted in hard copy form to 1859 Whitehaven Road, Grand Island, NY 14072. NO PHOTOCOPIES WILL BE ACCEPTED.
GRAND PRIZE: The one (1) restaurant with the most "Best Fish Fry" votes at the end of the contest will receive a special recognition and a full write-up in NFP's three main newspapers -- the Lewiston-Porter Sentinel, the Niagara-Wheatfield-NT Tribune and the Island Dispatch -- and on this website.
THOSE NOMINATING AN EATERY will enter to win a prize. One participant will be selected by random draw each Monday and receive a fish fry for two or a general food gift certificate courtesy of a participating restaurant. (Not necessarily the restaurant entrant voted for in contest.) Prizes not claimed within thirty (30) days of winner's notification will return back to NFP. Total prize value is less than $60.
NFP reserves the right to award a second like prize during any week of the contest.
