Reader’s Digest’s Canada’s Most Interesting Towns contest generated 160 submissions and over 19,000 votes in only two weeks but they're looking for way, way more.

What they're looking for is for citizens of our fair land to submit stories and pics that let the rest of the world know all the cool and interesting things about the place you live. You can talk about:

• Sites
• Sounds
• Quirky facts and features
• People

There are a few categories they're looking to fill, including the arts - which is where I figured you, the people who read this blog, might get into the act.

You'll find the full list of categories below. Under "most artistic", they're looking for stories that talk about the theatre scene, artisanal crafts, the artist-friendly vibe, bands and your local music scene, cool outdoor festivals and any unsual arts events.

The Important Stuff - Prizes & Details:
You could win a cash prize of $5,000 for you and $5,000 for your town for a community improvement project. There are also seven prizes of $1,000 each to be won. Submit your stories and photos in the following seven categories:

Best destination
Best cuisine
