We use a consensus based Borda Count voting system where voters can make up to 5 choices per single vote in order of preference. The overall winner in each category is whoever gets the most total points in two rounds. Round 1 voting is open until November 23, 2012. Final round is scheduled on December 12, 2012 during UP 2012 conference.
Update: First round is used to select top 5 candidates to participate in the final and decisive round. Points collected in first round do not count towards final round. The entry that gets most votes in the final round will be the winner in category.
First round is over. See list of finalists at this link.
