Award winners are recognized at the Secretary of State Awards Banquet during the Annual Florida Main Street Conference.

Winners receive a framed award and are photographed with the Secretary of State. How Many nominations can you submit? Each program may submit up to 5 nominations per year. Do NOT: Submit two nominations for the same category (e.g. You cant submit two businesses for Business of the Year

Who picks the award winners? Winners of the Secretary of State Awards are selected by a committee of seasoned Main Street executive directors.

If supplemental material is needed please limit to 2 pages. Images for submission Do: Send two or more high resolution photos in the form of a jpeg or png Can send them through email or Dropbox (Submissions must be digital)

Do NOT: Insert images within the text of the application Scan them all on one piece of paper and email them Send blurry or low resolution photos (if they look blurry or grainy to you they will also be too blurry or grainy for the graphic artist. How do I know if my photo is high

resolution? Here are some tips and tricks: Any JPEG image less than 500kb will only be the size of a thumbnail (which means the graphic artist cant use it) High resolutions images are 300ppi ( in a JPEG it should be about 3.5mb). Anything 3.5mb and up is what we are looking for. Images downloaded from Facebook may not be reliable, especially if been cropped or edited in any way. The best images are ones directly taken from a digital camera (or phone)

that havent been edited Submission deadline Nominations must be submitted on time, before 7:00pm EDT on the deadline day: April 8, 2017 There will be NO late submissions accepted this year!
