The Bear World Magazine Awards return for its’ second year to celebrate and honor bears in our community. This year the event will take place LIVE during Provincetown Bear Week at the Crown & Anchor and is being presented by BIKE Athletic.
We will be honoring bears across 10 categories and nomination submissions are now OPEN!
We are asking you, our loyal readers, to nominate the bears you think deserve recognition in the categories listed below. Just click the link and submit your nomination on the form. Nominations close March 1st and voting will open later in the year.
The only thing we ask is that you please not nominate any of last year’s winners. Although undoubtedly deserving, we are looking to spread the love throughout the community and recognize other equally deserving bears. For a complete list of last year’s winners click HERE.
We will also be honoring a new Bear World Icon and Trailblazer this year, but the editorial team will be deciding those honors amongst themselves. More on that soon.
