The NNBW Best In Business competition returns on August 18


Northern Nevada Business Weekly’s 2021 Best In Business competition is expected to return this month with the nomination period kicking off on Wednesday, August 18.

The competition will be available on – here are some of the key details of this year:

  • As in previous years, the 2021 competition will be split into two phases: a nomination period and a voting period, both of which will be managed by an independent third-party platform through the NNBW website (no paper ballots will be accepted; it’s all digital).
  • The nomination period runs from August 18 at 12:01 a.m. to September 7 at 11:59 p.m., during which readers can nominate any person or company in any of the 18 categories.
  • Once the nomination period is over, NNBW staff will spend time sorting the nominations to ensure accuracy.
  • Then, the voting period is scheduled from September 22 to October 5, during which readers can vote once per day for their preferred candidate in each of the 18 categories.
  • After October 5th, NNBW staff will count the votes and announce 10 finalists for each category in November, which means we will have a total of 180 finalists.
  • To wrap up, the 18 winners (including second and third places) will be announced on December 29, 2021, both on our website and in the Northern Nevada 2022 Book of Lists, the 14th annual edition of our special section of marquee which is scheduled to be released the same day.
