HELLO — 2019 Best of SRQ Local Readers' Competition

Welcome to the Best of SRQ Local,

Get ready for the 2019 Best of SRQ Local Readers' Competition. We'll be celebrating two very special BEST OF awards this year.

Winners who have dominated the #1 position in their category for 5+ years will be recognized with the Locavore Legacy Award.Finalists who have been recognized in their category every year of the decade+long competition will earn the title of Über Local Champion. 

We ask our astute readers to vote for their favorite local eats, shopping, arts, luminaries and hotspots culminating in the buzzworthy special "Best of SRQ Local" awards feature published in the April 2019 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 2019 awards edition. If your quote is selected, you will be invited to a special photo session featuring a few  of our readers whose vote makes the Best of SRQ Local such a phenomenal arbiter of the local best each year.

Ballots must be received by midnight on Monday, February 11, 2019 to be valid.
