The Free Press will publish a map of nominated houses and readers are then asked to vote on their favourite place.

Votes must be completed on the form published in the Free Press. Voters are also put in the lucky voter prize draw.

First prize is $200, second is $125, third is $75 and lucky voter prize is $100.

Winners will be announced in the January 2 edition of the Free Press.
