First of all, a big well done to all the people and companies that made it to the final phase. It had been a mammoth first phase and the nominations ran into the hundreds, as did all the new registrations that came in. To make it to the second phase is a great result in itself.

Next Step

The next step of course is now the voting. If you want to go straight to the NFA Voting page then click here. All registered users on the NFA site will now be able to vote for who they think should be winners in each of the 13 categories. There is a simple survey style sheet on there to keep things straightforward. Though it is important to remember that once you click the “Finish” button, you can’t undo it. So vote wisely and vote in as many as you want to.

The voting will remain live up until the 1st December. My tip would be to get it done and out of the way now, so you don’t have to rush at the last minute to get it in!

Again, well done to all those who made it to this final phase. Good luck to all those taking part!
