Most Loved SM Contest Rules:  The businesses with the most votes in each category wins.  Please also note that a business can win no more than two (2) categories. In the event that an individual business receives the highest number of votes in more than two categories, the Most Loved Committee Judges will review the results and award "Most Loved" based on the two categories in which the business scored the most votes, and select the business with the second highest votes as winner for the third category, if applicable.  All finalists must have a valid City of Santa Monica business license.   The winners will be announced in an upcoming  awards ceremony and in the "Santa Monica's Most Loved..." issue of the SM Daily Press and celebrated throughout the year by the Buy Local SM campaign, the City of Santa Monica and our local business partners.  All voters will be eligible to win a Most Loved raffle prize if they vote for a minimum of 10 business categories above (with at least 3 different businesses) and provide either a contact email or telephone number, which will remain confidential.
