The Nomination Process
It’s simple to nominate a person or business in the 2016 Bethpage Best Of L.I. competition. The nomination period is open from January 1 through August 31, 2015. During that time you can submit nominees here at bestof.longislandpress.com. Nominate your favorite people, places or things that apply to a specific category or in multiple categories, as long as they are applicable (Management ultimately determines eligibility.) At the conclusion of the nomination process, the nominees are honed down to include the winners of the previous year’s competition (they are automatically included on the ballot so they can defend their title against the top finalists in each category). The top 15-18 nominees (depending on the category) will advance to the official ballot, and voting begins on October 1, 2015.
