Nominations begin Tuesday, Aug. 1, 2017 and end Thursday, Aug. 10, 2017. Nominations are submitted via the Salt Award website (tribsalt.com) and cannot be submitted in any other format. Any nominations entered after 11:59 p.m. on Aug. 10, 2017, will not be considered.

Businesses can be nominated for multiple categories, but will only be considered for categories which the business qualifies for. All nominations are subject to the approval of The Salt Lake Tribune. All businesses within the state of Utah are eligible, but local businesses are preferred. Businesses are limited to one award in each category, Readers’ Choice and Editors’ Picks.

Readers’ Choice winners are selected via popular vote. Votes are submitted via the Salt Award website (tribsalt.com) and cannot be submitted in any other format. Voting begins Saturday, Aug. 12, 2017, and ends Thursday, Aug. 31, 2017. Any votes submitted after 11:59 p.m. on Aug. 31, 2017, will not be counted. Votes are limited to once per calendar day per e-mail address. Votes considered erroneous can be rejected based on the sole discretion of The Salt Lake Tribune.

Editors’ Picks winners are selected by a panel of Salt Lake Tribune editors. Categories for the Editors’ Pick awards are kept intentionally private in order to prevent influencing the Readers’ Choice awards.

All businesses granted a Salt Award will have been considered worthy of this award by The Salt Lake Tribune. Award decisions are final.
