Welcome to the voting phase of the 2006 Medical Weblog Awards!
Please exercise your right and vote now for your favorite weblog in the following seven categories:
This year, because of so many candidates, we had to break two categories (Best Medical and Best New) into two polls each. In each poll, you can vote for a weblog.
Together with you, a panel of judges will be contributing to the cumulative score for each blog. Medgadget editorial staff is joined by Sumer from Sumer’s Radiology Site, Josh from Kidney Notes, Enoch from Tech Medicine, Orac from Respectful Insolence, Steven from docinthemachine, Bard from A Chance to Cut is a Chance to Cure, Amy from Diabetes Mine and Allen from GruntDoc. Judges will not be voting in their own category. Moreover, judges will submit their results to Medgadget without revealing their scores to other members of the panel, so there is no bias for judges to vote for each other.
This year’s awards are being sponsored by Thinklabs Medical and Medgadget. Thinklabs will be giving a complete Thinklabs Stethoscope Recording Package to the winner of the Best Medical Weblog. The prize includes a Thinklabs ds32a Electronic Stethoscope and a 2GB Apple iPod Nano with a Micromemo recording accessory.
Winners in other categories will be awarded by Medgadget with the latest edition of The Merck Manual of Diagnosis and Therapy.
Please note that the winners will be announced on Friday, January 19, 2007. Polls will close at midnight on Sunday, January 14, 2007 (PST).

Good luck to all and may the voting be fair!
