We are so excited to announce that after the massive success of our inaugural Chicago Theatre Awards last year, we're expanding into several other areas of entertainment across our great city! Once again, all winners will be chosen by YOU, the patrons supporting Chicago's best and most exciting events and venues.
The first round of voting begins today (January 2) and will continue through January 16. The ballot will be revealed on The Hawk Chicago's Facebook page on Monday, January 22. The final round of voting will then conclude February 5th, with winners announced February 9th.
The categories are listed below. You do not need to submit responses in every category, and the final option on the ballot is to submit a new category that may be included officially in the next round. Please feel free to contact us with any questions - and happy voting!
