The About.com Readers' Choice Awards will showcase some of the best products, features, and services in multiple categories, from technology to hobbies to parenting. On the Agnosticism / Atheism site, the Readers' Choice Awards are designed to showcase the best resources available out there for agnostics, atheists, freethinkers, secularists, and skeptics.
You, the readers, nominate you favorites for each category. Finalists are chosen by the Guide from those who receive the most nominations. Finally, everyone votes for the best of the finalists in each category. You can nominate and vote for yourself, but this site isn't eligible for any nominations. You can also encourage others to nominate or vote for you.
There's no prize to the winner -- just the bragging rights that come with getting kudos from the readers of one of the most popular websites about Agnosticism & Atheism.
