How to vote

Simple click on the link for the voting page, where this years major nominees are listed and vote in the relevant forum. Your First Vote is the only vote that will count, so be careful, as I have to trawl through the lists to ensure no duplicate votes later. You can vote in as many or as few catergories as you feel able. The presenters of the awards at this years ceremony will be selected from the researchers who vote, so you may even get your name in lights on the big night. The result will be announced on March 24th, to conicide some poxy little awards ceremony in Los Angeles so you have 6 weeks to get to it.
