About the awards

For more than 16 years, Trib Total Media readers have voted for their favorite local businesses through our annual Readers’ Choice and Quest for the Best programs. Today, we are pleased to announce the launch of an all new community choice awards program – Best of the Best!

There will be two rounds of voting. First, readers will submit nominations to identify the top 3 local businesses in each category. Then, readers will vote from these finalists to name the Best of the Best in each category. Awardees will be announced December 10 in a special edition of our print publications.

There will be 130 business categories and 5 regional contests – WESTMORELAND, ALLEGHENY NORTH, ALLEGHENY SOUTH, ALLEGHENY EAST and ALLEGHENY WEST.

While the business categories are chosen by Trib Total Media, our readers vote for the winners. Trib Total Media acknowledges that some winners might not exactly fit the category description, but we report the results as expressed by our readers.
