Welcome to Best of the Bay 2021

Welcome to Best of the Bay 2021


It's the BEST time of the year—time to nominate your favorite local people, places, businesses, events, and more! 

Nominations have ended. Voting wil begin at noon on August 19th.

This year, the top 20 nominees with the most nominations will move on to the final voting phase from August 19th through September 9th.

The winners will be announced in our annual Best of the Bay Issue, which we're releasing at our annual Best of the Bay Awards Party on September 30th!

The fine print:

  • Help us celebrate what makes the Tampa Bay area unique by nominating locals only.

  • During nominations, you can write in any nominee and, this year, only the top 20 nominees will be announced during the voting phase which kicks off on August 19th.

  • If you are having trouble casting votes, you may need to clear your browser cache.

  • No ballot stuffing. If you suspect that you obtained your nominations or votes unfairly (via a third party or by voting for yourself repeatedly using fake accounts), you will be disqualified.

We can't wait to celebrate the Tampa Bay area's best with you!
