2014 Readers’ Choice Awards

The Readers’ Choice Awards recognize brands and products that really impressed our readers over the past year. We began the process by gathering nominations from readers over a two-week period. After compiling nominations, the top 10 to 15 nominees from each category made it onto the short list. Readers had the opportunity to vote from these short lists over a one-week voting period. The nominee with the most votes took home the big prize!
