We're going to give out awards in five categories, which reflect the main topics we cover here at Lifehacker:

  • Best Desktop App
  • Best Web App
  • Best Mobile App
  • Best ISP
  • Best Mobile Broadband Service

While we've got some definite ideas about contenders for each of these categories, I'm sure that there's plenty more you guys have to recommend as well. So over the next fortnight, we'll be looking for your suggestions for worthy contenders in these areas.

Put your suggestions for nominees in any or all categories (and tell us why you picked them) in the comments. We'll assemble them together over the next two weeks, then we'll pick out a top five of potential nominees and official voting for each category will begin!
