Every year Macworld pays homage to those products that help Mac users work and play, with prestigious awards from Macworld editors and readers. We surveyed every Mac product released between March 2001 and May 2002 to determine the nominees listed here. We recognize these products not only for their overall quality, but also for their creators’ willingness to lead us in new directions.

The winners will be announced at a glittering ceremony at the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich, London, this Friday. The nominations are listed below, alphatetically.
