Throughout the year, Georgia Trend publishes several special lists. Many readers have called and written asking how to nominate candidates for these lists. Here’s the scoop.
Georgian of the Year/100 Most Influential Georgians
Honorees in these annual features, which appear together in January, are selected exclusively by the Georgia Trend editorial staff based on our own knowledge and observations of the state’s power structure. The same holds true for the Notables list that accompanies them.
Although we don’t take nominations for this honor, we’re happy to consider serious suggestions. Feel free to email them to us via the form on the contact page of this website.
40 Under 40
Nominations are open for the 2019 40 under 40, now through Friday, April 26, 2019 at 5 p.m.
Each year Georgia Trend honors 40 of the state’s best and brightest under the age of 40. Whether you know someone who’s making a difference on the national stage or is a mover and shaker in his or her corner of the state, if they are under 40 years old as of Oct. 1, 2019, we want to hear about them.
The ideal candidate is someone who is successful in his or her profession and is passionate about community service. There are a few cases in which a day job alone is enough of a qualification, but the state is filled with people who excel from 9 to 5. We’re looking for those whose involvement and commitment goes well beyond what they are paid to do.
We do accept multiple nominations for individuals, and nominations may include backup material such as resumes or letters of recommendation. Get your nomination in today. Deadline: Friday, April 26, at 5 p.m.
Nominations are open for the 2019 Legal Elite, now through Friday, July 12, 2018 at 5 p.m.
To vote, you must be an attorney who lives and practices in Georgia and is a member of the State Bar of Georgia. You may not vote for yourself, but you may vote for attorneys in your own firm, as long as you vote for an equal or greater number of attorneys outside of the firm.
