Best of Readers' Choice Awards


Important Announcement

As a result of the RECORD BREAKING turnout for the nominations round, we will be moving the start date of the final voting round from Feb 4 to Feb 6, 2019. This will give us the time we need to prepare for this final part of the contest. Thank you for your understanding and thank you for your participation!


Welcome to the "Best Of" Coastal Virginia!

How many times have you wondered what businesses are the BEST in the Coastal Virginia area? Who has the best pizza? Who is the best Realtor? Where is the best place to buy flowers? The list goes on forever.  It's your turn to sound off on who really is the best of the best!  The CoVa Best of Readers' Choice Awards are a great way to support the places you frequent and the community individuals you love. In order to find out who is the best, we completely rely on you—our readers. So, vote away and spread the word!  

The Final Voting Phase is beginning on  February 6, 2019 at 4:00 pm and will run through March 29, 2019 at 11:59pm.


There are people who call businesses and ask for money up front to guarantee a win in Best of voting. PLEASE DO NOT FALL FOR THIS. Coastal Virginia Magazine does not sell a guaranteed win, no matter what! Fraudulent votes are removed from the contest immediately.


A Few Guidelines:

  • One ballot per person (e-mail address), per day please.
  • Nominees MUST be in the CORRECT Category in order to be counted.
  • Vote / Nominate for as many or as few categories as you would like, as our new ballot allows you to navigate through different pages seamlessly.
  • You MUST submit your name and e-mail address with entry to validate your ballot.
  • Once the initial voting period ends on February 3, the results are added up and double-checked for fraudulent voting or obvious abuse (those votes are then removed).
  • The finalist round will consist of the businesses receiving the most nominations in their respective categories. These businesses will move into the finalist round for additional voting that runs from February 6 through March 29, 2019. Our contest winners will be those receiving the most votes overall for the entire duration of the contest, this includes nominations. 
  • Vote for your favorites by clicking the vote button beside your choice.

Results of the Best Of Contest will be published in the July/August 2019 issue of Coastal Virginia Magazine,
