With three weeks left to go in the DIVE Travel Awards, it's time for the last push to see who comes out on top

Unfortunately, last weekend we had a huge surge in fraudulent votes. As a result, we've spent a lot of time going back through the logs and clearing them of any suspicious voting activity. We do not for a moment think that any of the destinations, dive centres or liveaboards are themselves responsible, but we want to keep the vote clean and fair for everybody, and we don't like meddling! None of the votes cast over the last week has been affected and we will continue to monitor the situation in the run-up to the closing of the vote on 31 October. The latest results, as of 12 October, are as follows:

title bar destinations

Indonesia, as it has done from the first week of the vote, remains in the lead. The Philippines is in a strong second place but the Maldives has been just shaded out of third place by Egypt

Dewi Nusantara and Amira remain in first and second place, with Wakatobi's Pelagian a strong third. Everything from fourth to tenth place remains very close, as it has done throughout the competition.
