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 at email@example.com.
40 Under 40
Nominations for the 2019 40 under 40 are now closed. The list of honorees will be announced in Georgia Trend’s October 2019 issue. Nominations for the 2020 40 Under 40 will open in spring 2020.
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, 2020, 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.
The 2019 nomination period for the 40 under 40 has now ended. Check back here in spring 2020 for information about 2020 40 Under 40 nomination period.
Nominations are open for the 2019 Legal Elite, now through Friday, July 12, 2019 at 5 p.m.
