Now fans will help determine which entries make it into the top-10. Voting and judging on the top-100 began Thursday at noon PST and ends March 7 at noon PST. Go to to vote

The top-10 will be announced on March 8. Half the list will be determined by votes and the other half by judges. The overall winner will be determined by judges and announced March 19.
