• A wide array of interests and a thoughtful approach to coverage.

• Ability to work independently and manage time well.




This town has more than its fair share of outstanding restaurants, retailers and services, which is why, 20 years ago, we decided to create an annual issue that pays tribute to the best of the best. Today, Charlottesville residents make their voices heard loud and clear as they nominate and vote for every single one of the area's 130-plus winners.
