DH Awards 2012 Results

The winners of the DH Awards 2012 are as follows. Once ‘accidental’ duplicates were removed there were 4101 ballots cast by members of the public over two weeks voting for one or more of the categories. The full list of sites nominated is still available. Sorry if your favoured resource did not win — open public votes are popularity contests and some of the contestants certainly did seem to campaign more than the others.
