With 15 categories, more than 300 nominations, and just under 14,000 votes, this year's Streaming Media European Readers' Choice Awards is our biggest yet, and we're pleased to announce the finalists in all categories today.

The finalists represent the three top vote-getters in their respective categories, listed here in alphabetical order. We already know the winners, but we're keeping that information under digital lock and key until October 16, when we'll announce them at a special reception on day one of Streaming Media Europe. There's still time to register for the conference, and as always, attendance at the Expo is free for anyone. Hope to see you there!
