In April and May of 2013, the moderators of /r/shanghai organised a "Best Of" awards after being prompted by a thread by /u/aarcn, which allowed users on the subreddit to nominate and vote for their favourite candidates in a variety of categories. Each candidate in every category was also voted on and decided by the community.
The basic format was one week to nominate the categories, another week to nominate each candidate to be voted for in the final categories, then two weeks of voting for the finalists.
|9th–16th April 2013||Categories nominated and chosen|
|16th–23rd April 2013||Candidates nominated for each category|
|23rd April–7th May 2013||Final voting|
|7th May 2013||Winners announced|
After a month of nominations and votes, the winners were finally decided, and can be found below.
You can also find the full list of winners (complete with links) in the Best Of /r/shanghai Awards results thread.
