What Are the Readers’ Choice Awards?
How Are the Winners Chosen?
From Jan. 13 through Feb. 4, we accepted nominations for hundreds of award categories across About.com. Based on the nominations received, our experts chose up to five finalists in each award category. Then visitors voted for their favorite finalists in as many award categories as they’d like. Winners were announced March 15.Note: We have internal checks in place to detect fraudulent voting activity, and in some cases the poll results shown during voting may not reflect the accurate final counts used to determine winners.
