    Might set up my own awards ceremony. The Racing Jim Affiliate Truth Awards. That would be a laugh.

    Sorry, but for me personal an award without publishing the number of votes after the final looks like a "paid result" based on sponsorship.

    Correct me, but I am unable to find any results of the exactly number of votes until the beginning of this award some years ago.

    Transparency is the basement of credibility, especially in this industry.

    There are no paid results here and the most decorated winners are non sponsors of Gaffg. Every year 5 affiliate managers and 5 affiliate programs are awarded for trusted affiliate manager and trusted affiliate program.

    Past 5 years of the winners

    http://gaffg.com/blog/gaffg-awards-2012-winners/
    http://gaffg.com/blog/gaffg-awards-2011-winners/

    Affiliate Edge has won 5 years in a row for both categories for affiliate manager and affiliate program.

    Bet365 Affiliates has won trusted affiliate program 5 years in a row including an affiliate manager award and a few charity recognition awards.

    Betting Partners has won multiple awards for affiliate manager, affiliate program and charity recognition award.

    Will summarize the winners soon and post here and on the awards page.

    We don't publish totals of votes as that would imply there is a single best program and it could imply or expose which participating affiliates voted for whom. There is nothing wrong with a label as the best program but I think that is up for debate and when it comes to trusting a program, we don't need 1st, 2nd and 3rd place. Also for asking for more transparency, it's not easy to do and be able to please everyone and by seeing the comments about the iGB awards, they deal with the same issue as well. The overall point of the awards is to give affiliates a means of voting for programs they trust the most. You have CasinoMeister awards which I think do a great job at highlighting good casinos and affiliate programs but I don't think it answers questions of which affiliate programs are ones you can trust. When I want to consider working with a new program, I don't care where they are a sponsor of, I care what other sites think of them from their experience in working with them.

    As a judge of the iGB Awards, I don't think I'd feel comfortable remaining a judge if vote totals are posted or my votes would be published. I'm more inclined to share who I didn't vote for in the event that a program wins that I strongly disagree with but the day that iGB changes things to be too transparent is when I'll stop voting and probably others too. Getting access to my votes will make one person happy and a bunch more people mad.

    While I give no standing to the plethora of self-named and recognition striving awards (including iGB, Casinomeister, GaffG at al.) a quick look at this list of three programs does provide a top short list of three good programs - so your process is doing something right!
