[Vote Closes Today] Phase 2 of the Community Choice Awards 2018 – Voting Now Open

Cc (1)

Update – Voting closes TODAY! Get your votes in now!

Welcome to this year’s Community Choice Awards! We’re confident that many of you enjoyed at least 1 product (or more) from 2018’s massive collection of new releases. Whether that was a new aircraft, impressive piece of scenery or useful utility – there was something for everyone.

Over the past 3 years, we have run our Community Choice awards as a way for the community to provide feedback to developers who have released a product from the past year, and to give you an opportunity to vote for the best of the best. It’s like the Oscars of Flight Simulation. The winners get something: the recognition they deserve.

You can vote here.

Phase Two

Voting Opens: 26-Jan-2019

Voting Closes: 31-Jan-2019 (23:59z)

This is where the real voting counts. We will release a final voting form which is split into the various categories. Under each category will be a selection of shortlisted products from phase 1.

You can only vote under each category just once.

Once phase 2 closes, we’ll count the votes. There will be two prizes: 1st Place and Runner Up. Once we are confident with the final vote counts, we’ll then award the winning product/developer with a Community Choice Award.
