Voting Open in the 2017 Streaming Media European Readers' Choice Awards
It's time for you to cast your vote in one or all of our 17 categories in the only industry awards program in which the winners are decided by the people who use their products and services.

The nominations are in and voting is now open in the 2017 Streaming Media European Readers' Choice Awards. It's the ninth annual installment of the only awards program in the online video industry in which you, the readers, have your say by selecting the products and services that have most impressed you over the past year.

Voting is open until 1 August. At that point, all voters will receive an email asking them to to confirm their votes; only these confirmed votes will be counted. Note that we will not accept votes from employees voting for their own company; all such votes will be discarded.

We'll announce the finalists—the three top vote-getters in each of our 17 categories—on 15 August, and the winners will be announced in the Autumn issue of the European edition of Streaming Media magazine.

Here are the categories—cast your vote today!
