Each year, readers of our magazine and websites take a survey to vote for the best businesses throughout Northwest Indiana and Michiana. The survey provides readers the opportunity to acknowledge local business leaders who are excelling in their service to the community. The Best of Business Awards promote excellence in innovation, entrepreneurship and leadership in the Region's business community.

Our readers visit our online ballot page to vote for their favorite businesses in multiple categories.


Dozens of businesses and organizations will be recognized in 30 awards across seven distinct categories in two regions: Northwest Indiana and Michiana.

Honorees were chosen by readers in an online voting process.

Results are tabulated and analyzed to ensure each reader has voted once per email address per day in each award category. If multiple votes are received for the same email address per day, only the most recent based on the vote timestamp will be counted in the final tally for the day.


Winners are notified in advance so they can highlight their honor in their marketing materials and in our magazine, websites and newsletter.


We will list the winners in the June-July issue of the magazine, on our websites and in our social media accounts.

Winning companies and media may use our logo in any online or traditional marketing materials. If you use the logo online, please add a link, so when someone clicks the logo, they are taken to the full list of winners for that year. Visit the logos page for more information and to download our logos.
