NOMINATIONS OPEN FOR 2021 PERFECT IN SOUTH WALTON AWARDS

The nomination period for the 2021 Perfect in South Walton Awards will be open from August 28th until September 13th. Visitors and locals alike can nominate their favorite businesses, events, and activities in an online form on www.perfectinsouthwalton.com.

“The Perfect in South Walton Awards are not only a great way to honor a business, event, or activity in South Walton, but also a way to keep our visitors talking about their favorite vacation memories,” says Visit South Walton Director of Marketing & Communications David Demarest.

Nominations can be made in as many or as few categories as you wish, but only one online form per person will be accepted. Visitor-facing businesses are welcome to encourage their guests, customers, friends and family to nominate them in any of the thirty categories.

The top five nominees in each category will move on to the voting round, which begins Sept. 25th and ends October 25th. The top three vote-getters chosen in each category will be recognized as Diamond, Platinum or Gold winners at the Perfect in South Walton Awards presentation in January 2021. These winners will be promoted in print and online by Visit South Walton throughout the year.

Some of last year’s winners included: Fusion Art Gallery for Best Art or Design Gallery/Studio, Blue Mountain Beach Creamery for Best Sweet Treats, and Baytowne Adventure Zone for Best Kids Attraction.
