For the last few months, we’ve been extra-busy testing gadgets, trying apps and evaluating accessories, all in the name of the ShinyShiny Awards 2014. We want to find the best and most useful bits of tech, so we can help you make choices you’ll love.
But we need your help.
As well as the categories decided by our panel of expert judges, we’ve got a selection of reader-voted categories so you can tell us what’s changed your life this year. And we’ll make it worth your while: every vote gives you the chance to win a £50 Amazon voucher to put towards your pick of the winners.
How to vote:
Choose a category below and you’ll see the gadgets, apps and services that made the shortlist. Click ‘Read more’ to find out about the products, to help you make your selection.
When you’ve decided, click the Vote Now button on either the category page or the individual product page, and cast that all-important vote. You can only vote once per category, so make sure you’re happy with your choice.
If you’d like to win an Amazon voucher, pop your email address in the box and we’ll include you in the draw.
Does my vote actually count?
In some award schemes, the reader vote counts for maybe 20% of the total. In reality, this means your vote doesn’t count for very much.
In the ShinyShiny Awards, the reader-voted awards are entirely democratic. That means what you choose wins. As it should.
There’s a whole list of products, services and people relying on your vote – so get voting now, and don’t forget to give us your email if you’d like to win a little something yourself.
