The time has come! The sixth annual Readers’ Choice awards special section in the Albuquerque Journal hits racks Sunday, Aug. 25

Albuquerque, NM — Hundreds of business leaders gathered on August 16 at Hotel Albuquerque to recognize the top businesses, places and things in the Duke City as part of the Albuquerque Journal’s sixth annual Readers’ Choice awards ceremony. On Sunday, August 25, Journal readers will get to see who won in each of the more than 250 categories in this year’s awards.

“The event was phenomenal. These businesses truly love Albuquerque and Albuquerque loves them,” said Journal Senior Vice President and Chief Revenue Officer Cecilia Uebel. “Earlier this year, more than 90,000 votes were taken as part of this year’s Readers’ Choice awards. We are excited to be sharing Journal readers’ favorite go-to spots for everything.”

A special section listing this year’s Journal Readers’ Choice winners will publish on Aug. 25. The premium special section features a write-up of each winner along with the top three choices in each category.

New this year, the Journal has created a special contest for readers to find specific type of references in listings. Winners will have the chance to win gift certificates for a variety of Readers’ Choice award winners.

“Journal marketing staff wrote witty descriptions about these award-winning businesses,” Uebel said. “We all took so much enjoyment from them that we wanted to encourage Journal readers to have a close read. Additionally, we wanted to showcase the Readers’ Choice award winners by offering a variety of gifts from them.”

This year’s Readers’ Choice was made possible by title sponsor Fidelity Investments and additional sponsors Intel, Nusenda Credit Union, Bay Equity Home Loans, Floorscapes, Smith’s Food and Drug, and Lee Michaels Fine Jewelry.

Albuquerque Journal’s Readers’ Choice premium special section will be available online at starting Sunday, Aug. 25.
