We would also like to extend our congratulations to this year’s winners. It was a tight race in many of the categories! We are grateful for all of our Hubbers and their time and commitment to make HubPages the best place to share knowledge and expertise with the world. Keep up the fantastic work!
The polls are officially open for the 7th Annual HubPages Hubbie Awards! You have two weeks to submit your vote, so take your time and consider your choices carefully—no rush!
Winners in each category will receive an official HubPages mug with the HubPages logo and your name or username.
If a Hubber wins more than one category, he or she will receive a mug for each category won (though we do love to see as many deserving Hubbers win as possible, so please do your best to diversify your votes).
Before you cast your vote, there are a few ground rules to keep in mind. Each Hubber may only vote once, so make sure you’ve got your list of nominees ready to go. Nominations submitted after Wednesday, September 20th at midnight will not be counted. If you don’t have a Hubber or article to nominate for every single category, it’s ok to leave spaces blank.
When you’re ready, you can visit the Official 2017 Hubbie Voting Form, or if you need more time to consider your vote, you can always browse the categories before making up your mind:
