As you may be aware we recently held the Bytes that Rock Software Awards recognizing the best software, games and blogs from the last twelve months for their hard work and the fantastic programs and blogs they have given to us during the last year. We are pleased to say it was hugely successful, thanks to all the nominees, judges and especially you the public for your participation.
So after a very long process which wasn’t easy we started by making a shortlist of the best blogs, games and software out there we received some fantastic nominations for each of our categories, eventually and after much deliberation we managed to whittle it down to the twelve very best in each category then we put the final results to a combination of you the public and our team of experienced judges to decide the overall winners, during the process we received approximately 15000 votes, incredible!
