The Daily News Readers' Choice


The Daily News Readers' Choice survey is coming soon, and we are giving three lucky voters gift cards ($250, $100 and $50) just for voting. The Readers' Choice contest features all of your local favorites in 11 divisions: Food/Cuisine, Dining by Occasion, Specialty Foods, Specialty Drinks, Professional, Automotive, Lifestyles, Real Estate, Health Services, Retail Shopping and Best Local - People, Places & Things.

How to Participate

Nominate your favorite businesses between June 21 and July 16. Your nominations will determine finalists in more than 100 categories.

  • Your nominations are saved as you cast them, so you don't have to fill out the ballot all at one time.
  • Don't see your favorite listed? Use the write-in field at the bottom of each category.
  • Categories will not be added once voting has started.

After the nominations are tabulated and the top five finalists in each category are identified, we'll invite you to select winners in another exciting round of voting.

  • You may vote one time per day between August 9 and September 2.
  • Three prize winners will be selected by a random drawing at the conclusion of the voting.
  • The winners will be published in The Daily News Readers' Choice Winners section on September 25, 2021.
