But some are more winners than others


Guy Jones-RVA 2017 drawing winner


Every year, we prove that the “Voice” in Dallas Voice isn’t those of us who work here, but those of you who read us. That’s why we created the Readers Voice Awards more than a decade ago: To have you weigh in about what you love about North Texas.

And you responded — boy, how you responded! More than 31,000 votes were cast in 109 categories (broken down into nine divisions). This year, Health ended up attracting the most reader interest (nearly 7,000 votes total), with Best Chiropractor being the most popular individual category. We added or tweaked a few categories for 2017, including Best Wedding Service Provider, Best Burlesque Performer, Best Local LGBT Community Role Model and

Best Photographer/Videographer. (And hey! We’re always open to suggestions for next year!) There were a few ties, some returning winners as well as newcomers. All of them made an impact. Give them — and yourself — a cheer.
