How does 417 Magazine pick the Best of 417 winners?
Throughout the year, our team keeps up with what’s new, hot, in style, delicious, making waves, going viral, selling out and making a big impression in 417-land. Then our editors combined them into a slate of nominations for 417-land to vote on. There were killer contestants to vote on for each category, plus voters had the option to write in anyone we left off the list. (Ugh, why didn’t we think of them?!) Voting was open from October 1–31. We compiled your votes, and the winners are published right here.
