Nomination period ends Sept. 7 for NNBW Best In Business contest

The Northern Nevada Business Weekly’s 2021 Best In Business contest returns next week with the nomination period kicking off Wednesday, Aug. 18.

This year's contest will again be broken into two phases: a nomination period and a voting period.

The nomination period runs from 12:01 a.m. Aug. 18 through 11:59 p.m. Sept. 7, during which readers can nominate any person or business in any of the 18 categories.

Next, the voting period is scheduled for Sept. 22 through Oct. 5, during which readers can vote once per day for their favorite nominee in each of the 18 categories.

From there, 10 finalists for each category will be announced in November.

To wrap it all up, all 18 winners will be announced Dec. 29, 2021, on our website and within the 2022 Northern Nevada Book of Lists, the 14th annual edition of our marquee special section that’s scheduled to publish the same day.

You can go here to view the full list of winners from the 2020 Best In Business contest.

To nominate, starting Aug. 18, go to, click or tap each of the three main categories, enter the full name and correct spelling of who you want to nominate in each subcategory, provide a photo and brief description of why that person or company is deserving, and submit.
