March 4 to April 8

Voting was live on our website. The people and businesses that received the most nominations in each category are the ones that were listed on the final ballot.

Late June

We’ll announce this year’s winners with the release of our July 2021 issue of 225 magazine. Each year, we find a different way to celebrate the winners, whether it’s a Hot off the Press launch party or a livestreamed award show.
