The new year has officially arrived, which means it’s time to reveal the recipients of the 2016 KAMMY Awards! Once again, I would like to thank my friend Jad Elias for all of his help and all those who have supported this project from the beginning until now. As an added bonus I will be attaching the Facebook voters who chose the correct winners (with their corresponding Facebook account names)!
