The prestigious Bulgarian contest “Mayor of the Year” will take place in September. This autumn, for the seventh consecutive year, the traditional national online competition on the platform kmetnagodinata.bg will be held, in which the citizens of Bulgaria will select with their vote the winners of the prestigious contest. This year they will evaluate the work of mayors and their teams in several categories for the entire 2015-2019 mandate. The awards this year will be under the motto "My City Is №1 in ...".
Traditionally, voting for municipalities is divided into categories based on their size - small municipality (with less than 20,000 inhabitants), middle (with a population between 20,000 and 50,000 inhabitants) and big municipality (with a population of over 50,000).
The “Mayor of the Year” categories for the 2015-2019 mandate are:
- Mayor of the Year
- Mayor of the citizens
- Urban environment
- Tourism, culture, festivals and traditions
- Education, sport and youth policies
- Investments and jobs
- Social municipality
- Smart City
The mayors who have received the biggest percentage of votes from the national online competition will be announced at a ceremonial evening on 18 September 2019 in Hall 6 of the National Palace of Culture in Sofia and will be proclaimed winners.
"Mayor of the Year" 2018
“Mayor of the Year” awards is organized for the seventh consecutive year by the Portal of the Bulgarian Municipalities - Kmeta.bg.

Every year, hundreds of thousands of Bulgarians vote and give their appreciation for the work of mayors and their teams. This is the reason why the "Mayor of the Year" awards have become an important corrective to the local authorities' efforts to develop their municipalities, and transform their cities with EU programs.
