We are pleased to announce that Best of Boroughs is back! During the weeks of September 4 – 19, 2018, every owner of a .nyc web address is invited to enter this citywide contest. If you love the City so much you’ve got a web address to prove it, then we want to hear from you.


One winner in every borough 

Participation couldn’t be easier. All you need to do is share your unique story. Tell us what makes your .nyc business, website, store, organization, or idea the best of your borough. 

When the contest closes on September 19, community members will be asked to vote. In the end, one winner will be chosen from each of the five boroughs and named the Best of Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens or Staten Island, depending on the borough in which they reside. 


Who is eligible?

Anyone with a working .nyc web address. Perhaps your .nyc website creates a space for local businesses and communities to come together, or maybe it advocates for an important cause. Maybe you run the coolest bike shop in the Bronx, or the swankiest salon in Staten Island. Whatever you do, there are endless ways to enrich NYC’s community, which is why the contest is open to our entire .nyc community.


Prizes, perks, and more 

This year’s contest winners will receive prizes, perks, and even a cash prize. Here’s what you can expect: 


⦁ A $5,000 cash prize 

⦁ A feature in an upcoming marketing campaign

⦁ An official “2018 Best of the Boroughs Winner” plaque 

⦁ + more prizes


Think of it as an enthusiastic “thank you” from our .nyc team for helping to make .nyc the distinguished, iconic domain that it is today.


Winners will be announced during a live special ceremony in NYC, attended by City representatives as well as fellow .nyc finalists.
