We are a poor blog, so we can't give each winning camera a golden statue - instead we have created a spartan graphic :) If you have a blog, website or forum, please feel free to add it to the award collection of your favorite camera(s) :-) (please feel free to resize it).

For reviews of some of the cameras mentioned above be sure to check the DSLR Reviews and Compact Reviews Index.

PS> "DSLR" in this context includes all cameras with interchangeable lenses. While not a purist use of the term, it makes the text a lot more readable if you type "DSLR" versus "Interchangeable Lens Digital Cameras (ILDC)".

PS2> The Polls will remain open but any future votes will not alter the official results and awards
