 I strongly disagree with some candidates in some of the categories, but it doesn't really matter. I'm not going to write my opininon here, because there is no reason at all.
I wrote this post in order to inform you about this interesting event, and that's all. The only thing we have to do now, is to wait until the 3rd of September, in order to learn the winners... :-)
