Welcome to Galveston.com & Company's 2018 Best of the Island Awards, the Oscars of the Gulf Coast according to the Houston Chronicle!
All autumn long, thousands of visitors to Galveston.com have nominated their favorite people, places, and organizations in a host of categories. From those nominations, the TOP FIVE VOTE RECIPIENTS IN EACH CATEGORY (sometimes more due to ties in votes), were named Finalists. We are now thrilled to present the 2018 Best of the Island Finalists, and you're now encouraged to cast your votes for the winners!
First, select a category (ie, food & drink) - and then a subcategory (ie, pizza) - below in which to cast your first vote. Enter your email address and submit. Only verified email addresses will be accepted, so watch your in-box for a special link once you cast your first nomination. Once you click that link? You'll then be able to access the entire ballot. Votes will be accepted November 1 thru December 31, 2018. You can vote once per week, per category!
At the end of the final voting process, the Top 3 Vote Receivers in each category will capture the Gold, Silver, and Bronze prizes.
