You may be wondering what happens after the nominations close – 

On Monday, May 22, the Selection Committee will review all submissions. The “People” category winners will be decided by the committee and will be announced at the event in November. Past inductees proposed this method as they felt it would level the playing field.

The Committee will pre-select the top five nominations per brand and model category. You’ll then be able to vote on your favorite brands and models later on this Spring!

Don’t forget that all net proceeds from the Diecast Hall of Fame will be going to a charity that is near and dear to our hearts called There With Care, so be sure to get your tickets today! Read the full announcement here.
