IndieSwatch 2018 Bests Announced

Indie Lovers!

I am pleased to announced the winners and runner ups.  This is the first year we are implementing the Hall of Fame as well!  If a particular category has had the same winner in 1st place for 3 years in a row, the polish or brand will go into the Hall of Fame.  It will be added to the Hall of Fame tab and will be taken out of future voting for that category.  At the very end, I have answers and comments to some of the feedback and plans going forward.

First let's look at some stats!  Total of 1667 valid voters.  A total of over 95,000 individual votes were casted.
