NEW ORLEANS (press release) – 2020 has been a difficult year, but our resilient city is full of organizations that have found a way to pivot and give back to our community during the pandemic.
Do you know an organization that is doing amazing things for our community? Ask them to nominate themselves for a Love Your City Award.
The Love Your City Awards, happening on January 28th, 2021, is New Orleans’ annual sustainable business awards ceremony, where organizations are recognized for leadership in 10 impact categories:
- Food Access
- Local Culture
- Water Management
- Housing & Built Environment
- Pollution Prevention
Organizations can apply for one category or apply across all 10 categories for the “Best in Show” Award, an award that recognizes a best all-around for-benefit company.
Organizations can apply by simply filling out this form.
“The future of business is in impact,” says Ben Johnson, CEO of the New Orleans Chamber of Commerce. “The Love Your City Awards helps our business community realize all the ways we can grow our economy while making New Orleans a more sustainable place to live.”
Applications are due on Dec. 11.

This year’s event supports families in need of food with each ticket, while also supporting 50+ local musicians and several black-owned restaurants. Despite the challenges we have faced this year, the Love Your City Awards will give us the opportunity to celebrate our resilience.
