The six categories available to vote on are:

From these and the other categories one winner is chosen for the Best of the Year Award.

Past winners of this award include Sal D’Amato of ABNH, Werner Reinhart of Kurz, Gunther Dausmann of Hologram Industries Research, hologram inventor Steve McGrew, Hugues Souparis of Hologram Industries and Brian Monaghan himself posthumously.
