EHA Community Award 2017 Nominees

In Awards by Koen Crijns

Nominations for the 2017 European Hardware Awards are in and voting begins on 23rd October. Every company and product listed below was chosen by the readers of Cowcotland, Geeknetic, Hardware.Info, Hardware Upgrade, Hardwareluxx, KitGuru, Lab501, PurePC and SweClockers. 

Each member of the EHA will run it’s own reader awards – asking an audience of more than 20 million hardware enthusiasts to vote for the products they love most. Voting closes on 10th November 2017. While vendors can encourage people to vote – incentives of any kind are not allowed.

On a ‘one man, one vote’ basis – the results from all 9 sites will be brought together from 13th to 17th November and the regional winners will be announced on 22st November.

The EHA Community Award winners will be announced on 23rd November.
