And now the moment of truth: Who will win the 2014 Ammann Awards in their respective categories?

Voting is now underway after taking in a substantial number of candidates on both the national and international levels and constructing a new voting platform that will make voting much easier than in the past.  Using the voting platform Poll Daddy, provided by Forum Communications and its subsidiary and cousin of the Chronicles, The Grand Forks Herald, you will have an opportunity to not only vote on the candidates you think deserve the awards (there are no limitations and your votes will be annonymous), but also keep track of the number of votes tallied in each category.

The procedure is simple: Just click on the links to the categories below, look at the candidates, click onto the links to Poll Daddy and then, click on your favorite candidate to vote.

With the exception of Best Photo and Mystery Bridge, each candidate has a short summary with links for more information. In the category Mystery Bridge, click directly on the name of the candidate to access the photos and stories of these structures before voting. The voting process is open to everybody, and you are free to forward the polls to others interested. Please keep in mind that voting will close on January 6th, the Day of Epiphany. This will give you time to go through the candidates and vote on your favorites. If you have any further questions, please contact Jason Smith at the Chronicles.

Without further ado, happy voting! 🙂
