Submit your nominations for AJC’s Best of Atlanta 2016

We’re launching a new AJC Best of Atlanta program to let our readers decide which activities, restaurants and experiences are the Best in Atlanta.

From East Point to Alpharetta, Marietta to Stone Mountain, we want to hear about the best that your corner of metro Atlanta has to offer.

Here’s what you’ll do:

Nominate. We want you to tell us who should be in the running to be named the best in Atlanta. Leave your nominations in the comments section and we’ll gather them up to create the final list of nominees for each category. 

Vote. Every Monday starting Feb. 1, we’ll announce one new category and open up the polls for seven days. You can find the latest poll on or by liking AJCaccessATL on Facebook.

Share. Tell your friends, family, community, co-workers and everyone you know to vote. If you do share on social media, use the hashtag #AJCBestofATL

Celebrate the winner. Winners are chosen 100 percent by reader votes. Each week’s winner will be revealed on Mondays, so make sure to check back every Monday in 2016 to vote for the newest category and see the latest winner.
