Here is an explanation of the two stage award process:
First Stage: Starting January 14th, you can submit your favorite marriage-related resource or products in up to nine categories. Although you are free to nominate in all categories, you don't have to enter a nomination in every category. We encourage you to spread the news to your friends and associates of who you nominated or if you were nominated.
Read more about the categories, the awards timeline, and visit the online nomination forms.
Finalists are chosen based on popularity, as long as they meet the eligibility requirements listed in each category.
Up to five finalists in each category will be announced on February 19th.
Second Stage: Voting will run from February 19th through March 19th. The winners will be announced on March 27, 2013. You can vote daily for the nominee you think should be the Readers' Choice Award winner for each category.
You can find many other Readers' Choice Awards categories on the About.com network of channels. Remember to start submitting your nominations beginning Monday, January 14th!
