Nominations for the annual contest where readers, friends, family and customers vote for their favorite businesses, professional services, schools, restaurants and more are NOW OPEN! There are more than 300 categories to choose from this year, with everything from best lawyer and best car repair shop to best burger and best place to work, all with the goal of highlighting all the reasons people like to call Clay County home.
Anyone can nominate a business or person - there is no limit to the number of nominations each person can submit -through March 18th. Voting will take place from March 19 through April 19 , during which each person can vote once per day in as many or as few categories as he or she wants. There will also be a ballot in the paper that readers can fill out and turn in to our office.
The Best Of platform on The Clay Today website will feature lists of nominees in an easy-to-use format. Nominees can participate in advertising packages that promote their entry by expanding their listing to feature additional details on the business.
The contest will culminate in the First Best of Clay Annual Publication, where the winners are announced for the first time! Each winner will receive a framed “Best Of” Certificate, a cling on office window sticker, the "Best Of” PDF for use in future advertising and bragging rights to be called the “BEST OF” for their business type. The list of winners will be published in a special Publication and distributed county-wide in May with the opportunity for each business to promote their victory to the community.
'Best Of Clay' will take on a life of its own this year. We expect a tremendous engagement from the public and excitement from local businesses. We are so excited to launch this first time Clay County 'Best Of' contest allow businesses to fight for bragging rights and actively be engaged in this interactive process between our quickly growing reader base and our business partners," Publisher Jon Cantrell said. "It's exciting to recognize the great things going on in our community, and Best of Clay 2019 is going to be the biggest local contest ever done in Clay County Florida.
