INTRODUCTION

Thank you for taking the time to complete this survey by the Bay Area Reporter. Your opinions are important to us. For this eighth annual readers' poll we're including nominees for each category, along with a write-in designation. This year's nominees are a mix of previous winners, runners-up from last year, and new entries.

The survey should only take 10-15 minutes. Your identity and answers are completely confidential and will be used to contact winners of a random drawing for several valuable prizes. You must complete at least 75 percent of the survey to qualify for the prize drawings. Entrants will be automatically added to our newsletter. One survey per person/email is allowed and must be submitted by midnight (Pacific Time) March 7, 2018.

If you have any questions about the survey, please contact our office at (415) 861-5019.

Survey results will be published in the April 12 issue of the BAR. On Friday, April 13, a free celebration party and show is open to the public at Oasis nightclub, 6-9pm.
