Right, no messing, straight to it. With the votes totted up we can finally present the results of this year's annual readers' poll. The top 5 in each of the 7 categories are presented below.

Thanks to everyone who voted (boy, was there a lot this year and even some chancers who tried to double- (and, shock horror, even triple-) vote but the ever vigilant CLUAS electorate panel caught yiz!)
