There will be two rounds of voting. In the first round, we will have 24 polls matching the 24 issues we published in 2021. You will be able to vote for your favorite review from each of the 24 issues. Following the first round, we will take the winning review from each poll (24 in total) and put them into the final poll, which will help us determine the one review you, our readers, voted as your collective favorite.

Here’s how the campaign works:

Round One

Voting in the first round ended on February 27.

Round Two

Voting in the Finals round ended on March 7, 2022.
