2023 Nominations Are Now Open!

“What Makes Atlanta’s Best the Best?”

Good question. Atlanta’s Best Awards aim to recognize the best businesses in the greater Atlanta area. Using a combination of 5-star reviews, online ratings, and votes, we recognize Atlanta’s best businesses across over 200 categories. You can read more about how the awards work right here.

No one cares about getting it right more than Atlanta’s Best™ does, period. We are relentless in our pursuit to find and recognize the best places, companies, and organizations in Atlanta. We’re able to find the best (with your help) because we do it differently:

  • No pay to play — participation is free. While we couldn’t do it without our sponsors, they are still held to the same scoring standards as any business in Atlanta’s Best™.
  • You choose the nominees and do the voting, not us.
  • Online reviews help determine the winners.


The Atlanta’s Best Business Awards take place in three stages — nominations, voting, and reputation scoring.

Phase 1: Nominations

Anyone who lives in the Atlanta area can nominate a business or organization for Atlanta’s Best; you can even nominate yourself! Nominations take place online from July 17 – July 28, 2023. Remember; the more nominations you get, the better. The top nominees in each region will progress to the voting round.

Phase 2: Voting

After the nominees have been determined and notified, it’s time to get out the vote. The voting period is September 4 – 8, 2023. Any Atlanta area resident with a mobile phone can cast their vote for as many categories as they like, but only one vote for each category. Voting is done through our website and ballots are secured through SMS verification.

Every Wednesday during the voting period we’ll be giving away great prizes via our “Hump Day Giveaway”. Those who referred other voters via our voting application will be automatically entered to win; every referred voter is an additional entry.

Phase 3: Reputation

The top vote-getters for each category in their region will move on as finalists. We’ll announce this as soon as we can after tallying and confirming votes. Finalists are then scored for their online reputation. Specifically, we’ll capture the previous 12 calendar months of reviews leading up to September 8, 2023.

Announcing the Winners

Once all the data is in, we’ll announce the winners at our Atlanta’s Best Awards Ceremony, tentatively scheduled for the evening of October 18, 2023 in the Atlanta area.

Now let’s kick this party off with some nominations!

Atlanta’s Best is an awards contest that is owned and operated by Inbound Systems.
