Once a year, puts the spotlight on fifty great websites — focusing mostly on new ones and older ones which are great, but not household names. We’re about to do it again.

The list is full of sites which we TIME editors use and love. But we’re always on the hunt for more candidates, and if you’ve got any, we’d love to hear about them in the comments on this post.

Rising stars and underappreciated gems are both welcome. There’s no point in stuffing the ballot box — because this isn’t a ballot — and nominations by people involved with the sites in question, or their representatives, aren’t anywhere near as helpful as ones from sincere, unaffiliated fans.

Here are our categories:

  • Education
  • Entertainment
  • Family & Kids
  • Games
  • News & Information
  • Productivity
  • Quirky
  • Social
  • Shopping
  • Web Tools

And here, to spark your imagination, are our choices for the past few years (if we’ve named a site already, it’s not a candidate for this year):

The 50 Best Websites of 2012

The 50 Best Websites of 2011

The 50 Best Websites of 2010

See you in the comments, and thanks in advance.
