This issue marks our second annual Best of Atlanta awards, and also our second biggest issue ever. For that we are thankful to all of our advertisers and readers who support us in print and every day on the web and social media.
Among the many honorees, you’ll find both perennial favorites and new names. You’ll likely find many winners you applaud, and a few that make you wonder.
We’ve heard it said that these awards are “a popularity contest.” That is most definitely and intentionally true. There is one criteria — and only one criteria — for our Best of Atlanta awards: reader votes.
