The nominations for 2015 are in!

2014’s Best of Columbia issue marked the 25th anniversary of the annual readers’ poll, first launched by Free Times in 1989.

And make no mistake: Best of Columbia is a readers’ poll — we aren’t handing out awards to whoever spent the most money on advertising, nor are the writers and editors of Free Times deciding who gets the nod in any given category. The winners presented here are your choices. So, whether you’re thrilled or disappointed with the results, just know that the verdict reflects the will of the people.

Below you’ll find a complete list of 2014 winners. We also encourage you to check out our full editorial coverage of the winners and our writers’ picks.
