The Southern California Year End Awards started in 1999 on SoCal-Wrestling.com and were taken over by SoCalUncensored.com starting in 2001. The awards are largely recognized as one of the most prestigious awards in indy wrestling and have been referenced in national and international media. The voting for the awards consists of two parts; a public webpoll worth 35% of the total vote and balloting by a committee of voters that is worth 65% of the total.
Webpoll voting is now open for the year end awards on the SoCalUncensored.com message board and will be open until January 18th. All 2016 award winners will be announced on January 26, 2017.
