News: ICN Award Categories 2015

We’re trying to make our awards more interactive and transparent this year. To begin the process we are publishing the list of categories so people can provide input and begin to suggest nominees (we are particularly looking for this in relation to the Hall of Fame and one of our new categories Best Newcomer as there are a lot people that could be considered for both).
