Who is your unsung hero? Who do you know that deserves an Indie Award?
Which restaurateur is making a difference in the community? Whose constructions are building for Dane County's future? Who is connecting Madison with the world for all of our benefit?
Heartland Credit Union and Isthmus Publishing Co. encourage you to nominate and celebrate the independent businesses and artists for the second annual "Indies." The Isthmus Independent Business Awards, the "Indies," will honor local businesses leaders and artists who boldly go their own way and, by doing so, have made our community richer. They embrace risk, shrug off stereotypes and boldly leap outside the box.
This September, area residents are nominating worthy local business people and artists who represent the best of the community through their leadership, philanthropy and community building. Nominees must be independent businesses owners or operators, proprietors, fine artists or performers, based in or around Madison and Dane County.
There will be Indie Awards given in eight categories: Market Spark, Fresh Food Friend, Green Angel, Heartland Artist, Dynamic Developer, Neighborhood Notable, Bridge Builder, and Dane and Beyond.
It's easy and takes just a minute -- who will you nominate?
Nominations can be made online, or by mailing them to:
