You already know that element14 is keen to hear your thoughts and feelings all year round, whether it's about the Community, electronic products, coding, building, making or any other subject that excites and inspires engineers.
But during the Community Awards, it's more important than ever to make yourself heard by embracing your right to vote in all seven of our Awards categories.
And alongside the opportunity to exercise your electoral rights, you can give your element14 profile a democratic boost by earning our brand new Voting Badge.
All you need to do to enter the contest is...
- Check out our Terms & Conditions, nodding thoughtfully in contemplative agreement as you read them,
- Earn the "I Voted" badge by voting in all seven of our Community Awards polls, which are open now and close on 4th December, and...
- Drop a comment on our Future Technology Predictions to tell us what you think is likely to be the hot tech of 2016.
But you must get your votes in before the Community Awards polls close on December 4, 2015 to get the Voting Badge!
Once the polls have closed, we'll be putting those who've earned the Voting Badge and commented with their 2016 tech prediction into a prize draw to win a bundle of fantastic element14 items, including our Product of the Year; so vote carefully, as you might well be determining your own prize!
This is a head's up, so you can check out the nominees before voting begins on Monday, 16th November.
As soon as the polls open, you can start earning your Voting Badge and get in the running for some great prizes.
