Thank you for the hundreds of nominations and thousands of votes. You guys really know how to pick ’em! I picked one this year as well.
I chose Laura Janelle Downey as my Publisher’s Pick because while not eligible to be in the contest because she works at Atlanta Best Media, I know firsthand of her commitment to physical and spiritual health and dedication to giving back. Meet our esteemed managing editor here.
What makes this year even more special is that we not only celebrated our 2018 winners, but we recognized our entire Over 40 & Fabulous! family of winners from 2010-2017. These like-minded men and women who are devoted to serving our community have become friends and colleagues, using their platforms and passions to collectively make an impact on the world. Check out the alumni who joined us this year for our contest winners photo shoot at King Plow Arts Center.
As for this year’s winners, I hope you enjoy their captivating stories and get inspired! We definitely did.
And last but certainly not least, thank you to our expert partners who make this contest and the events surrounding it possible. Learn more about them here.
All the best!
