Every year, Frisco STYLE Magazine hold 3 events that honor different passions within our community: Person of the Year, Cover Photo Contest, and Best of Business. Below, you’ll learn about what each event is about and what goes into each one.
Person of the Year
We’re looking for the movers and shakers within our community that help categorize our city as the best of the best; truly, someone who rises above and pulls us up with them. This should be recognized as a lifetime achievement award, not just rewarding what they have done in the past year. The previous winners have not only helped us become what we, as a city, are today, but have also worked hard to help the people of Frisco for generations to come. Previous winners include Bob Warren, Mike & Sandy Simpson, Mach Borchardt, George Purefoy, Jill Cumnock, Peter Burns, Sam Roach, Sue Stafford, Carlos Liscano, Rick Reedy, Craig Hall, Jim Gandy, and Shelley Holley. While it is one thing to live in Frisco, worship, enjoy the shopping, entertainment and restaurants and rear a family—it is an entirely different thing to have been a major catalyst for bringing and maintaining this culture in the first place.
Cover Photo Contest
We’re looking for your “best shot” for the cover of our 2019 August Arts Issue. Art? Nature? Portrait? Landscape? We want it all. For a modest Entree Fee of $30, you can enter up to five images for consideration. In years past, we’ve received everything from blimps over Europe to kids jumping in Lake Travis. So, give us your best shots and YOU COULD BE A WINNER!
Best of Business
The Best of Business issue honors between 8 and 10 area businesses for excellence in business and each recipient will receive editorial coverage in the issue. As we have for the past several years, our application and awards process will focus on the critical areas of business excellence necessary for success in any business.We also place all businesses on a “level playing field” related to how they are evaluated and awarded.
