It's that time of year again -- the time when you, the readers, get to nominate and then vote for the best anime of 2012 in a whole slew of different categories: the 2013 Anime.About.com Readers' Choice Awards.
Starting today (January 14), and until February 11th, 2013, you and everyone you know can nominate your favorite anime releases, re-issues, streaming services and other anime-related products from 2012. Five finalists from each category will be selected by your Anime.About.com guide (that's me!), and will advance to the final round of voting.
The final voting phase, where you and others like you will pick from the top five in each category, will last from February 19th through March 19th, with winners announced March 27th.
Please note that due to the way voting is being conducted, voters must use either a valid email address, a Facebook account, or an About.com login to register their votes.
Here's the link to the nomination form, and feel free to spread word of this event through any venue you see fit. (Click on the "Share" button at the top right of this blog post for quick links to common social networks, or just copy and paste the link as needed.)
