After years of being disappointed by awards shows and complaining about snubs, we at Flickchart decided to make our own awards. Many of the Flickchart bloggers voted on the nominees and once those were agreed on, we opened it up to you – the public – to vote on your favorites.
Now that you’ve voted and picked your favorites, here are your nominees, comments on the nominees from some of our writers, and your first annual winners at the Flickcharters’ Choice Awards!
