Help us prepare for the 2018 People’s Choice poll

Comments, suggestions and opinions welcome!

The annual Best of the Best, People’s Choice Awards survey is based entirely on feedback from you, our site visitors, and present or former members of the Lake Chapala community. This means that if you do not agree with who won in any particular category in the previous year, please voice your opinion through your votes in the coming year.

As contest sponsors, we at ImagenMx compile the annual poll using the previous year’s winners plus public nominations and Write-Ins. The Write-In feature is important because it allows late entries (such as a newly opened business) to bypass the nomination and Semi-Final stages and still compete … and possibly WIN! In fact, quite a few categories were won by Write-Ins in the 2017 poll.

To assist us in preparing and conducting the upcoming 2018 People’s Choice poll, we ask you to submit your comments, suggestions and opinions. We are listening!! Contact us at, or through our Facebook page at Best of Lake Chapala. We use Facebook to post up-to-date news and announcements, so please don’t forget to “Like” our page.

As contest sponsors, ImagenMx offers offers over two decades of reputable and highly professional service to the Lake Chapala community. We do not profit from or influence the survey in any way; we simply make every effort to ensure accurate, valid and objective contest results. The sole purpose of the People’s Choice poll is to recognize outstanding business practices and products, and provide valuable information to visitors, residents and newcomers.

Each year, we have made a few modifications to the survey process in an effort to streamline, clarify, and improve efficiency and security. In 2017, we shortened the voting times so that winners could be announced sooner in the year, allowing them to take advantage of publicity and promotional opportunities in a more timely manner.

The timetable for 2018 is shown below. Any important changes need to be made well in advance of the survey launch. So please keep your valued comments and suggestions coming. Thank you all!!
