The Manhattan Beach Chamber of Commerce created the Best of Manhattan Awards in 2013, with the intent of recognizing outstanding people, businesses, and philanthropic efforts in the City of Manhattan Beach. In an effort to be as inclusive as possible, the categories have evolved over the years. In 2020, we continued to celebrate the entrepreneurial spirit in the city via your screen. This year, we will be hosting the event at the westdrift hotel in Manhattan Beach. Mark your calendars for Thursday, October 21, 2021; the best is yet to come!

Nomination Rules

The nominees must be located in Manhattan Beach... after all, it is the Best of Manhattan Awards. Nominate your favorite in each category. There will only be one round, so nominate the best. Nominations open Thursday, August 12, 2021 and will close at 11:30 pm on Sunday, August 29, 2021. The top three in each category will become finalists. The one with the most votes wins.
