Yes. In order to ensure that our editors are able to review your work, we require descriptions to be submitted in English.
How many times can I vote?
One vote per IP address per day is allowed. (Although this is not completely ideal, we feel that this creates a good blend between community engagement and our ability to detect fraudulent voting behavior.)
Everyone is invited to vote for their favorite IoT Award winners. The Award Committee reserves the right to discard any and all votes that it reasonably determines to be fraudulent, and to remove a project or company for any reason.
