Now it is time to cast your nominations for the esctoday.com National Final Awards 2010. Below, you can find links to polls for 14 of the 15 categories and you can post a reaction to cast your nominations in the Best act eliminated in a semi final, quarter final or heat category.

The possible nominees of each category were determined through the individual polls launched right after every national final. Four of each poll top five will get a nomination for an esctoday.com national final award while a fifth nominee will be added by the editorial team of esctoday.com. One song/performance per country is still in the running in each category. If a country is not nominated in one of the categories, it means that no song/performance matched the criteria of the respective category.
