Reg Hardware Awards 2011 Ladies and gentlemen, it's that time of the year again. The annual Reg Hardware Awards are here and, once again, we need your help finding the best - and the worst - consumer electronics and infotech products of 2011.

Over the coming weeks, we'll be asking you to name your favourite kit from among this year's releases. We've made some shortlist suggestions, but you're very welcome to name your own favourites.

To refresh your memory, here are 2010's winners - and the worst.

This week, we'll calling for your nominations for our Lifestyle category, which gathers together our Home Entertainment Product of the Year, Gadget of the Year, Camera of the Year and Content Service Provider of the Year awards.

Over the following three weeks, you'll have the opportunity to nominate your most lauded kit in the Mobile, Computer and Gaming categories:

Votes will be tallied during December and we'll be announcing the winners during Reg Hardware's special CES Week - seven days of total Consumer Electronics Show coverage that'll bring you news and pics of the hottest products set to hit the shelves in 2012.

And don't forget to name the product you think most deserves our Rusty Dodo award for the naffest, least necessary, most unwanted product of the year. There'll be one Rusty Dodo for each of the main categories.
