HELLO — 2020 Best of SRQ Local Readers' Competition

Welcome to the Best of SRQ Local,

Get ready for the 2020 Best of SRQ Local Readers' Competition where we ask the community to share their local favorites.

We ask our astute readers to vote for their favorite local eats, shopping, arts and culture, attractions, professional services and hotspots culminating in the buzzworthy special "Best of SRQ Local" awards feature published in the April 2020 edition.

We hope you'll share your favorite local experiences—from new restaurants to the most memorable theatre productions, from our community's best achievements to seriously talented chefs.

Only locally owned establishments may be nominated for the "Best of SRQ Local" Readers' Competition, e.g. independent restaurants and locally owned companies and boutiques. 

Limited to one ballot per person. You will be asked to provide your name, address and email to verify this ballot. Ballots submitted without an email verification cannot be counted. Incomplete ballots with too few votes overall or those with votes only in 2 to 3 categories will not be accepted.

Get published! When you share your story about why you voted for your favorite, your quote will be considered for inclusion in the April 2020 awards edition. If your quote is selected, you will be invited to a special photo session featuring fellow readers whose votes makes the Best of SRQ Local such a phenomenal arbiter of the local best each year.

Celebrate with us at the TGIF Best of SRQ Local Party on Friday, April 3, 2020 at Aloft Hotel in Downtown Sarasota. Readers who vote in the competition will be the first to get the chance to buy the hottest ticket in town—last year the event sold-out in a record 10 days.

Ballots must be received by midnight on Friday, February 7, 2020 to be valid.
