    1. Log in/Register and nominate your favourites in the categories listed.

    2. From 19 April you can both nominate and vote for nominees within each category. You can enter multiple nominations in the same category but you can only cast one vote per category. Cast your votes by clicking on the 'Vote' button on the nominee of your choice for all categories. The online counting system ensures that votes can't be duplicated and that individual users can only vote once. From 7 May we will reveal the top 10 nominees in each category and the final round of voting will begin.

    3. Voting will close on 3 June. On 4 June, one reader who's voted will be selected at random to win Dhs10,000.

    4. The nominee with the most votes in each category wins. Winners will receive an award at the Ahlan! Awards celebrations in June 2015.
