It’s finally time! The results are in! Six weeks of voting and over 1000 votes cast, and we finally have the winners right here.
Last year, we included the top five (or more, since there were a lot of ties) in each category but this year, we can have a distinct top three in every category bar one, so that’s what we’ve gone with. However, if you do want to know how the numbers worked out, there’ll be a link below to the results (as of tomorrow, probably, thanks to internet connectivity and slow computer issues).
See the breakdown of results here!
Otherwise, happy scrolling!
