Nominate the Charlotteans of the Year


SINCE ITS INCEPTION in 2014, Charlotte magazine’s Charlotteans of the Year program has quickly developed into one of the most prestigious awards programs in the city.

We want your help in choosing the 2017 honorees. We’re looking for people who’ve made our city a better place in the past year. They can be businesspeople, nonprofit leaders, artists, government officials, restaurant owners or chefs, scientists, doctors, or schoolchildren.

Use the form below or send your nomination directly to editor Kristen Wile. Be sure to explain in detail why we should choose your nominee(s). Our staff will examine all nominations this fall, before revealing the winners in the December 2017 issue.
