Apologies for not getting the Viewer's Choice Vote up and running by the date we had stated. With London in such turmoil due to the riots which effected a number of our finalists who lived in areas where the riots were taking place, we thought it would be inappropriate to start the votes at a time when all that London was doing at the time online was quite rightly talking about the riots.
We delayed posting the Viewer's Choice blog posts and then the Edinburgh Festival, holidays, Bank Holiday and me getting some weird viral infection got in the way, so everything had been delayed even more.
We appreciate the hard work that all finalists have put in and know that many people are keen to vote, so please watch this space and in the next few days, The Viewer's Choice Voting will be up & running, so get those voting fingers at the ready.
