The choice of heroes and anti-heroes of 2015. To participate in the survey

When the lists of candidates, the editorial take into account, first of all, how noticeable and significant were the acts of a particular person in 2015. In a number of categories were taken into account and the frequency of mentioning a particular candidate in the media reports (including the reports of our site).

We proceeded from the principle that one and the same person cannot be represented in multiple categories – even if he deserves it. In addition, we did not include in the list of nominees of those who were the leaders in that particular category last year.
