We've counted all the votes in the 2015 Streaming Media Readers' Choice Awards, and today we're announcing the finalists—the top three vote-getters in each of our 29 categories.

This year’s awards brought in 326 nominations; after weeding out the duplicates and the nominations that weren’t appropriate for their categories, we narrowed the field down to 249 nominees and opened the voting to StreamingMedia.com readers. Nearly 3,600 of you voted, casting a total of nearly 36,000 votes in our 29 categories, which bridge both the Streaming Media and Streaming Media Producer purviews.

The winners will be announced November 18 at Streaming Media West, which once again is being held at the Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach Resort and Spa in Huntington Beach, California. This year's awards are sponsored by Epiphan Systems, Elemental TechnologiesTeradek, and UStream. Winners will be featured in an article in Streaming Media magazine and StreamingMedia.com, as well as our Streaming Media Xtra newsletter.
