To nominate someone (or to nominate yourself) download the Nomination forms and email them in with any links or attachments that support the nomination. After the nominations are closed, the entries will be sent to a panel of judges from Radio, Television, Print and/or Internet from other large markets outside of the Greater San Francisco Area.
