Travel enthusiasts can vote for their favorites beginning today on TripOutTravel.com or through their Twitter accounts. Results will be announced in early November.

Voters can also share their top "NewNowNext Travel Awards" categories on Facebook, which will then alert and encourage a voter's friends or followers to sound-off on which nominees deserve such titles as "Sexiest Spot," "Best Luxury Hotel," "Best Global Destination" and "Best Hotel Chain."
