- On Friday, the winners of the M-TH votes will be voted on again to reveal a weekly winner
- On the last Saturday of the month, the weekly winners are put up for a final vote to select the monthly “Best Content” winner
But, that’s not all.
All monthly winners will be automatically entered into the Plutus Award competition for a People’s Choice award for the best content of the year.
Plus, monthly winners will get a free pass to FinCon 2019 in Washington D.C.!
