Finalist Voting for the 2015 Choice Awards

The nominations from round one of the 2015 Choice awards contest have been tallied. The nominees with the most votes in each Triad area are listed below along with a link to their website. These finalists include the top three, but it is now your job to choose just one final winner for each category in each Triad area! (We had one tie, which resulted in four finalists listed below.)

Please note that for the sake of keeping it simple, we have designated each area by a Triad city, but the finalists will include the surrounding cities and towns.

Triad areas are grouped as follows:
Greensboro, Burlington & Surrounding Areas
Kernersville, High Point & Surrounding Areas
Winston-Salem, Clemmons & Surrounding Areas

Please also note that many finalists have venues in more than one Triad area, but we have listed only the areas for which they received the most votes and qualified as one of the top three finalists.

You will see all of our finalists listed below and may vote for your favorites HERE! Please read the instructions at the top of the survey link before voting. For more details and our timeline on the Choice Awards, click here. Feel free to share this blog through social media to help spread the word and send your favorites into the winner’s circle!
